The heads of some of the largest companies in the UK are supporting the notion to stay a part of the European Union. This includes chief executives at Heathrow, Gatwick and Easyjet, whom all signed a letter expressing their concern that leaving the EU could potentially put jobs at risk, alongside future investment and growth.
The letter was posted in The Times, it says the following…
“Business needs unrestricted access to the European market of 500 million people in order to continue to grow, invest and create jobs.”
“We believe that leaving the EU would deter investment and threaten jobs. It would put the economy at risk.”
Heathrow CEO John Holland-Kaye then continued:
“Heathrow believes that the UK will be better off remaining in a reformed EU. We are the UK’s only hub airport, connecting Britain to over 80 long haul destinations, and handling over a quarter of UK exports – but we recognise that for business to thrive we also need to be part of the single European market.”
He further added to that being part of the EU has made air travel both affordable and convenient.
“A vote to remain offers the best of both worlds – it secures our place as a powerhouse in the global economy, while remaining in the world’s largest free trade zone.”
The referendum to decide whether the UK will remain part of the EU will be held on 23 June.
