EU Referendum

The interview which took place at Dotty’s Old Town Café in Swindon, was part of a selection of interviews held yesterday morning by the BBC’s Nick Robinson.

Prior to speaking to GWP Group’s CEO, Nick Robinson spoke to a range of local residents, business leaders and farmers about their views on whether Britain should stay in the EU.

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.
