Moody’s comments shows the Government must negotiate to keep Britain in the Single Market

Responding to Moody’s warning that Britain’s credit rating could be downgraded if we leave the EU Single Market, Anna Soubry MP, leading supporter of Open Britain, said:

“A downgrade of our credit rating would make Government borrowing more expensive, which means there will be less to spend on public services.

“This warning from Moody’s points to one very clear conclusion. The best way to protect our economy is for the Government to negotiate to stay in the Single Market, which gives our businesses free access to 500 million consumers, the biggest market in the world.”
