Wilson – Businesses want the Prime Minister to commit to Single Market membership

Commenting ahead of the Prime Minister’s speech to the Conservative Party Conference in which she is expected to announce that all EU law will be enshrined in British law, Phil Wilson MP, of the Open Britain campaign, said:

“We still know nothing about the Government's plans for our new relationship with the EU, whether over trade, security or migration.

“As car manufacturers have made clear, it is essential that the UK remains a member of the Single Market to protect investment and jobs. This is what businesses want to hear the Prime Minister commit to.

“I am deeply concerned about workers' rights and environmental protections. We will hold the Government's feet to the fire to ensure we get longer term reassurances that neither will be watered down.”
