Overview

Membership of the EU cannot be weighed solely in monetary terms, but the economic costs and benefits are likely to factor highly in any decision about membership. With the Conservative Party’s pledge for a referendum in 2017 on the UK’s membership, panellists from both sides of the in/out debate will consider the economic consequences for a British exit.

This event will be followed by a reception.
