The Share Radio EU Debate: Featuring John Springford of the CFER & David Buik of Panmure Gordon
The Chancellor George Osborne says he'll slash public spending and increase taxes in an emergency Budget to tackle a £30bn "black hole" if the UK votes to leave the European Union. That could include raising income and inheritance taxes and slashing the NHS budget. 57 rebel Tory MPs have threatened to block the measure which they've said would make the Chancellor's position "untenable". The Chancellor's warning comes as the latest polls suggest that public momentum is moving towards a vote to leave Europe. With both sides pulling out all the stops to change the minds of the vast pool of undecided voters, there is still everything to play for. Today we're going to hear the arguments For and Against Britain remaining in Europe. David Buik is a market commentator at Panmure Gordon and a supporter of the OUT Campaign. John Springford is a Senior fellow at the Centre for European Reform. He's also an Advisor to the House of Commons Treasury Committee for Economics of the Brexit inquiry.

'Europe is not the same as the EU' - Peter Lilley MP on why he will vote to leave
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.
