Soubry & Umunna – For the sake of jobs, growth and UK prosperity, Britain must remain in the Single Market

Responding to the Prime Minister's comments on the single market on Sky this morning, leading supporter of Open Britain Anna Soubry MP said: 

"The greatest freedom for UK businesses to trade within the single market only comes from being a member of it.

"The single market is the world's largest free trade area with one rule book, no tariffs and maximum freedom for our vital service sectors. There is no comparable alternative.

"No-one voted to be poorer, which would be the inevitable consequence if we were to leave the single market.

"The Government needs to set out more detail on how we will leave the EU and what our long-term relationship will be. For the sake of jobs, growth and UK prosperity, that must mean being within the Single Market."

Responding to the Prime Minister's comments on the single market on Sky this morning, leading supporter of Open Britain Chuka Umunna MP said:

"There is no cost-free option for leaving the Single Market. Any trading arrangement outside the single market would erect barriers with our largest trading partner and would be disastrous for the UK economy, jobs and businesses.  

"The PM should be ambitious for our country and set as her goal being in the Single Market with new immigration arrangements that move towards fair movement, giving more control while meeting the needs of our economy. 

"Rather than evasive interviews, the country wants a clear plan for how the Government will avoid economic self-harm and protect our prosperity."
