A bit of Balance

The Treasury Committee has published its report 'The economic & financial costs and benefits of the UK’s EU membership'.  Commenting on the report, Right Hon. Andrew Tyrie MP, Chairman of the Treasury Select Committee, said:

“The arms race of ever more lurid claims and counter-claims made by both the Leave and Remain sides is not just confusing the public. It is impoverishing political debate……. The public are thoroughly fed up with them.  The public are right.”

The Treasury Committee – comprised of prominent Brexiteers and Remain campaigners – has agreed a unanimous report.  Over several months, the Committee has been examining these claims, and has come to some firm conclusions about a number of them.
