Business leaders back Britain remaining in letter to The Times





200 business chiefs believe Brexit risks UK jobs
200 business leaders employing more than 1.2m people have signed a letter to The Times warning that Brexit would put the UK’s economy at risk. Signatories of the letter include chief executives and chairmen of more than a third of the FTSE 100 and major companies such as Heathrow and Gatwick Airports. The letter outlines the compelling case for Britain remaining in a reformed EU: “Business needs unrestricted access to the European market of 500m people in order to continue to grow, invest and create jobs.” Commenting on the letter, Roland Rudd, chairman of Business for New Europe and treasurer of Britain Stronger in Europe campaign outlined the significance of the letter: “This is the single biggest number of business leaders who have been willing to support staying in a reformed EU,” adding that “what is also striking is the number who have done so on behalf of their companies as well as in a personal capacity.”
