What people are saying about the EU


“We believe that leaving the EU would deter investment and threaten jobs. It would put the economy at risk. Britain will be stronger, safer and better off remaining a member of the European Union.”
– Ralph Speth, Chief Executive, Jaguar Land Rover

“The potential consequences of a UK exit – or Brexit – are twofold for domestic pension schemes. A break from the block would affect the UK gilt and equity markets. There are worries that it would drive foreign direct investment (FDI) out of the country.”
– Professional Pensions, 29 May 2015, http://www.professionalpensions.com/professional-pensions/news-analysis/2410737/would-quitting-the-eu-lead-to-a-freer-uk-pensions-market

“Our students are taught by the best minds from across Europe… [Leaving the EU] would undermine the UK’s position as a global leader in science and the arts.”
– Sir David Eastwood, Vice-Chancellor, University of Birmingham
