PM meeting with European business leaders: 13 April 2016
David Cameron met European business group leaders, discussing the EU referendum and why the UK is better off in a reformed European Union.
The Prime Minister said:
I met European business groups in Downing Street today, together they represent more than 3 million firms. Their message was clear – leaving the EU would put up barriers to hundreds of billion pounds of investment in the UK.
They say we are better off staying in a reformed European Union, guaranteeing jobs, investment and financial security for the British people.
