Leaked May comments shows she should put Single Market membership at the heart of the Government’s negotiating strategy

Commenting on the news that Theresa May said in a speech to Goldman Sachs that staying in the European Single Market would be good for the UK economy, Phil Wilson MP, leading supporter of the Open Britain campaign, said:

“It’s good to know that privately Theresa May thinks what many of us have been saying publicly for a long time – leaving the Single Market would be bad for businesses and for our economy.

“Now she is Prime Minister, Theresa May is in an unrivalled position to act on her previous concerns – starting by putting membership of the Single Market at the heart of her Government’s negotiating strategy.”
