We send £350 million a week to the EU

We send £350 million a week to the EU – enough to build a new hospital a week
250,000 EU migrants a year come to the UK – it’s out of control and damages the NHS
It’s safer to take back control and spend our money on our priorities
 Imagine if we Vote Leave in 64 days’ time… We can take back control and free our small businesses from burdensome EU regulation which costs us over £600 million a week.

BBC: The Great Debate
 - On 21 June, the BBC will be holding a televised EU debate at Wembley Arena. The event will feature senior representatives from Vote Leave and the IN campaign. To reserve your place click here.

Juncker admits that the EU is too meddling
Jean-Claude Juncker yesterday made some astonishing admissions, stating that the EU too often meddles in the business of individual member states. He acknowledged that ‘we are no longer respected in our countries when we emphasise the need to give priority to the EU’, before going on to say that the EU is ‘losing economic clout in a very visible way’. In an admission of defeat, he concluded that he couldn’t ‘go any further’ to try to reduce the level of spending by the EU institutions.
When even the President of the European Commission admits the EU isn't working, we know that it’s time to take back control. Every week the British taxpayer sends £350 million to the EU, and by Juncker’s own admission this will only rise and rise. After we Vote Leave on 23 June, we can spend this money on our priorities, instead of handing it over to an ever-growing and inefficient Brussels bureaucracy.

Business is divided on the EU
The IN campaign would like you to think that the world of business is firmly behind EU membership. However, the reality is that opinion is split in the business community.
The EU works for big business because they can afford expensive lobbyists to shape the rules in their favour. Indeed, multinationals are using EU law to cut their tax bills and reclaim billions of pounds from the UK Government. Research by Vote Leave found that British taxpayers could be on the line for up to £50 billion because of rulings of the European Court attacking our tax system.
However, smaller businesses see the EU as costly and burdensome. Only 6% of UK businesses export to the EU, yet 100% have to comply with Brussels regulation. Yet SMEs often don’t have a say on these rules. After we Vote Leave, UK businesses will no longer be shackled by Brussels red tape, and will be able to focus on creating jobs and driving the economy.
