There is less than a month to go before the EU referendum and voters face an onslaught of claims, counter-claims, arguments and warnings over whether staying or leaving is the best option. Britain's relationship and role within Europe has been a matter of debate for centuries, more intensely since the war and continuously since membership of the EEC, now the EU, 43 years ago. Former Secretary of State for Trade, Peter Lilley, cabinet member under Margaret Thatcher and John Major has experienced that debate at some crucial stages, particularly the Maastricht treaty. He joins Ed Mitchell, host of Investment Perspectives, in studio.
