A strong, growing and sustainable economy is vital to supporting the lives of everyone in our society. When the economy falters, we all feel the pinch – whether it’s pay freezes, increased prices at the supermarket or difficulty getting a job.
This election there is one big decision at stake that will have a greater effect on our economy than any other: Brexit. Our neighbours in Europe are our closest trading partners and industries across the UK rely on tariff and red-tape free access to the European market. Failure to protect the needs of British businesses by preserving our membership of the Single Market would be devastating for our economy and damaging to the livelihoods of millions of ordinary people.
