EU referendum letter: 1280 business leaders sign letter backing Remain - The Independent
A letter signed by 1,280 UK business leaders from 51 FTSE 100 companies has been published, backing the campaign to keep the UK in the EU. Remain campaigners have said that the letter, which was published in The Times, shows "unprecedented"... Collectively, the companies on the list employ 1. 75m people. New names on the list include Sir John Parker, chairman of the multinational mining company Anglo American, and John McFarlane, chairman of Barclays. "Businesses and their employees benefit massively from being able to trade inside the world’s largest single market without barriers. As business people, we always look to the future — and a future inside the EU is where we see more opportunities for investment, growth and new jobs. The leaders fear a future where they will have to re-establish the terms of trade with their consumers, which could mean less trade with Europe and fewer jobs. Polls show that big businesses back the EU, while small businesses are divided, with half backing Leave and half Remain. This letter contains signatories from across the spectrum, from Richard Branson, founder of the Virgin Group, and Michael Bloomberg, the founder of Bloomberg News, to dairy farmers in Devon and whisky distilleries in the Scottish Highlands. Remain said it hoped to lay rest to the idea that businesses are split over the issue of whether to stay in the EU, one day before the referendum vote is cast. On Tuesday, the leaders of 103 British universities wrote an open letter with a "grave" warning about the potential consequences of leaving the EU. "Voluntarily cutting ourselves out of the world’s largest economic bloc would undermine our... Business and political leaders are making their positions known in a last ditch attempt to sway opinion before voting takes place on June 23. Two polls have shown that the Remain and Leave campaigns are neck-and-neck. Read the letter from 1,280 business leaders in full below: Sir, We own and run more than 1,200 businesses, from micro companies to the FTSE 100, employing more than 1. 75 million people. Our reasons are straightforward: businesses and their employees benefit massively from being able to trade inside the world’s largest single market without barriers. As business people we always look to the future – and a future inside the EU is where we see more opportunities for investment, growth and new jobs. We know that Britain leaving the EU would mean having to re-establish terms of trade from scratch with our home market of 500 million consumers. That wouldn’t just hurt exporters but the hundreds of thousands of small and medium firms who do business with them. Even those that want Britain to leave say that, in the short term, Brexit would lead to economic uncertainty and would put jobs at risk. Smaller businesses and the people they employ are particularly vulnerable to any economic shock that could follow a vote to leave. Britain leaving the EU would mean uncertainty for our firms, less trade with Europe and fewer jobs. Britain remaining in the EU would mean the opposite: more certainty, more trade and more jobs.www.independent.co.uk
Cigarette 10 packs to be banned and plain packaging introduced tomorrow - Daily Mail
All packets will have to be the same olive green colour, with the same font, size, case and text appearance. The move follows a ruling from the European Court of Justice earlier this month which approved sweeping new rules in a bid to slash the number of smokers across the EU by 2. 4 million. An estimated 700,000 premature deaths are caused each year, and cancer charities are backing the measures. * Picture health warnings must cover 65 per cent of the front and back of every packet of cigarettes, with additional warnings on the top of the pack. * The minimum contents rule also applies to hand rolling tobacco packets, which must weigh a minimum of 30 grams. * The rules will require warnings for e-cigarettes, limit their nicotine levels to 20g and restrict advertising and sponsorship by their makers. * Menthol cigarettes will be given an additional four year phase-out period before they are banned outright on May 20, 2020. . While the new law states that all cigarettes and hand rolling tobacco products manufactured for sale in the UK must... This means that from May 21, 2017 onwards the banned products will no longer be offered for sale. After the European court ruling, a Department of Health spokesman said: 'Smoking is the biggest cause of premature mortality and kills over 100,000 people every year in the UK. 'We warmly welcome the judgment that the Tobacco Products Directive is... 'The new requirements for tobacco products, e-cigarettes and herbal products will come into force on May 20 and are expected to result in £13 billion in health benefits in the UK alone. The new law, called the Tobacco Products Directive, was adopted in 2014 - but was held up by tobacco companies, who claimed it was the new rules were 'disproportionate'. But the European Court of Justice today upheld the directive, arguing it is in line with efforts to fight smoking and protect public health. Poland, which appealed the 2014 tobacco directive, seemed to accept the verdict. But a statement issued by its ministry of Development said it was able to postpone the ban on menthol cigarettes until January 1, 2020. According to the statement, Poland is EU's fourth-largest tobacco producer and second-largest producer of... 3 billion menthol cigarettes were produced in the country in 2013. . But the day before new regulations come into force, a High Court judge in London declared that they are 'valid and lawful in all respects', and rejected a judicial review action...www.dailymail.co.uk
