EU Referendum: In or Out?

The EU Referendum has, over recent months, been the biggest cause of media headlines and polarised debate in many years, and as we head towards 23rd June 2016 the country appears split, with large numbers still undecided.

The results of this seminal vote will have an impact on our country for generations, especially in the Midlands as the UK’s productive manufacturing heartland. Many are still asking for greater clarity and information. As West Midlands Liberal Democrats are keen to Stay In the EU, whilst also keen to promote real opportunities for debate and discussion around this vital topic – open to all interested parties.

West Midlands Liberal Democrats are therefore delighted to invite you to join our Intogether Referendum discussion with Lord Fox, of Leominster, Herefordshire, who will put the case for Britain to Stay In.

Chris Fox is currently Group Communications Director and Executive board member for a global engineering business based in the Midlands, having held similar roles in some of the UK’s largest and oldest businesses. He studied Chemistry, is an Associate of the Royal College of Science and a past President of Imperial College Students’ Union.

Amongst Lib Dems, Chris is best known as having been the CEO of the party during the 2010 election and into the first two years of coalition. In the distant past Chris was brought up in Leominster and was founder chair of the North Herefordshire Young Liberals in 1974 and since then has been a councillor, PPC and constituency chair. He sits on the regional executive. He became a peer in 2014 and sits on the Science and Technology Select Committee. Perhaps not surprisingly he lists his hobby as climbing mountains.

West Midlands Liberal Democrats would like to thank William McGrath, Founder Director, C-Suite Pension Strategies, for supporting this event. C-Suite Pension Strategies has been established to assist companies deliver a balanced approach to pension costs whilst also investing in productive growth. William is known to many in the Midlands business community, having spent 14 years to December 2015 as Chief Executive of FTSE-business, AGA Rangemaster plc.
