Urgent Question: UK Economy and the EU Referendum

Following the Urgent Question (UQ) on childhood obesity there was also another UQ was granted on the UK economy and the EU referendum.

This UQ was debated because on Monday the Treasury produced a report that outlined the costs of leaving the EU on the UKs economy.

I reminded the Minister that businesses up and down the country coming out in favour of remaining within the EU. In particular, Airbus in our area has written to each and every one of its employees outlining the risks of leaving the EU.

The Minister agreed that we should be listening to the thousands of businesses, both large and small, that are telling workers and customers that there are serious risks if we leave. But more importantly huge benefits from remaining in the EU.
