Open Britain responds to Jeremy Corbyn’s Brexit speech

Commenting on Jeremy Corbyn’s speech on Brexit tomorrow [Tuesday], James McGrory, Co-Executive Director of Open Britain, said:

“It is important that our country prioritises protecting the economy in the forthcoming negotiations with the EU, as Jeremy Corbyn says. We cannot allow immigration policy to dictate economic policy – we need a balanced approach that protects jobs and growth.

“Without doubt, that means full participation in the Single Market. To have a proper industrial strategy and boost British manufacturing, it is essential that Britain stays in the Single Market, able to continue selling goods to the EU – our biggest consumer which buys nearly half of everything we sell abroad.”
