In partnership with British Influence, ResPublica released its vision of a renewed European Union with Britain at its heart, and we want to know your views on the reforms we need most. Visit www.leadingnotleaving.com to have your say.
The EU Referendum debate has been dominated by negative arguments about costs of staying in or the price of leaving. Without a positive case British case to remain, our EU membership is dangerously at risk; and without a long-term British reimagining of the EU, a vote for the status quo will not end the underlying Euroscepticism that holds Britain back on the international stage.
What is urgently required is a positive case to remain that describes a new vision for Britain in the EU, and crucially a new path for the continent itself. We therefore propose: that Britain decides to lead in the European Union.
This Manifesto sets out a positive case for Britain’s membership of the EU. It outlines 14 policies that will help the UK to flourish within a new, British-led Europe.
1. Charter Cities in Africa and the Middle East
2. Children’s Rescue centres and an EU wide adoption agency
3. EU Education Passport
4. EU funding for migrant homes
5. EU wide Commitment to defence spending
6. Secretary of State for European Affairs
7. Improving Parliamentary scrutiny
8. MEPs with constituency links
9. Completing the Single Market
10. Cutting bureaucracy
11. Enhanced Trade Deals
12. Review EU Competition policy
13. Strengthen EU Competition policy
14. Secondment for civil servants
