Europe debate must be based on hard facts, not hollow rhetoric - CBI

The CBI responded to the debate in Parliament on a Private Members Bill to enshrine the timing of an EU referendum in law.

John Cridland, CBI Director-General, said:

“The debate on Europe is not going away anytime soon, and it’s vital that those arguing the case for staying in the EU, and those pressing for an exit, come up with clear, evidence-led visions for the UK.

“We must consider what an alternative for the UK would look like, based on hard facts, not emotion or hollow rhetoric.

“There is a real sense among business leaders across the continent that major reform is needed and that the EU should be focusing on growth.”
