David Pedley gave his views on the benefits and risks for businesses such as GWP Group on opting out, and staying, in the European Union. David discussed risks of opting out of the European Union including increased competition for business. He also mentioned though that staying in the European Union could also be a risk due to the rising social costs associated with EU membership.
