A couple of weeks ago EEF launched its report Manufacturing: Our Future in Europe, outlining manufacturers' views on the UK's membership of the EU and where we go from here.

Since then:

City UK reports that 84% of financial services companies want to stay in the EU

And today the CBI is providing the wider busines perspective, adding further weight to the argument for continued EU membership.

80% of CBI members want to remain part of the EU

There is a growing body of really good analysis on what the EU brings to the UK and its economic prospects, which must be used to improve the level of debate that we are having in the UK.
