Guildford better off and healthier in the EU

Analysis released by the Treasury this week suggests that leaving the EU could tip the UK into a year-long recession, threatening jobs.

Guildford Labour Party is campaigning for Britain to remain in the EU because it brings our town and the country jobs, growth and investment, protects workers and consumers and helps keep us safe. Leaving would put that at risk and diminish Britain’s influence in the world.

Over three million British jobs are linked to our trade with Europe; it is by far the UK’s largest trading partner. If we left, there would be a hit to the British economy which would leave British people worse off.

Commenting on the new research, Labour’s Shadow Chancellor, John McDonnell said, "This is yet more evidence that a Tory Brexit would only make matters worse for working people already struggling under a Tory Government".


Furthermore, in an interview on the Andrew Marr show, Simon Stevens the Chief Executive of NHS England, raised serious concerns of the impact of Brexit on the NHS. 

Simon Stevens is absolutely right: leaving the EU could have very serious consequences for the NHS.  Under the Tories the NHS has gone backwards and a vote to leave the EU risks plunging it into an even deeper crisis. It could leave us with fewer doctors, fewer nurses and frontline services at risk of closure. 

The vote is not just about whether or not we remain a part of the European Union. It's about the future of our economy, the future of public services and the future of our NHS.
