Six facts you need to know about the EU:


The Liberal Democrats believe Britain's future is brightest within the European Union.  We accept not everything about it is perfect, but the facts speak for themselves.  Here are six of them:Union_Jack-1.jpg

Fact 1. Over 3 million UK jobs are linked to our trade with the EU - that's one in every ten UK jobs.  Source: Office for National Statistics, House of Commons Library

Fact 2. Being in the EU means lower prices in our shops because it's cheaper to trade and there is more choice - saving you on average £450 a year.  Source: European Commission

Fact 3. While being in the EU costs each household less than a pound a day, independent experts estimate the benefits are worth £3,000 a year to the average household, due to lower prices and more jobs, trade and investment.  Source: CBI, Office for National Statistics

Fact 4. We are safer thanks to the European Arrest Warrant because we can arrest criminals across the EU, not just those residing in the UK.  Source: National Crime Agency

Fact 5. 200,000 UK businesses trade freely with other EU countries - helping them create jobs here in the UK.  Source: HMRC

Fact 6. The UK gets £66 million of investment every day from EU countries - creating even more jobs and opportunities for UK families.  Source: Office for National Statistics
