Support for the UK to join the Euro (Currency)

Additional Information

The UK would be a stronger European contender and would strengthen our ability to conduct business globally if we joined the Euro, which would support the growth of jobs and trade in the UK.

- A saving of £4.5 billion in converting £ into a foreign currency,
- Saving conversion costs will mean competitive pricing with current European traders using the Euro
- A single and transparent currency will tempt more UK businesses to compete in mainland Europe,
- A single European market – without trading restrictions – should benefit the UK as we produce quality goods and services,
- UK will have more of a say in European trade policy: we will maintain most of our economic control measures.

Please sign to support this, as despite problems in the Eurozone at present, the UK's strength will give us more of a say in European issues and strengthen our economy if we joined the single currency.
