CBI to present European Union membership case

Employers' group the CBI will use its annual conference in London to make the case for continued membership of the European Union.

It argues the UK can best benefit from increased global trade flows from inside the economic bloc, and will present research that says each household here benefits from membership to the tune of £3,000 a year.

The CBI is the latest group to show favour of EU membership – while arguing for a renegotiation of Britain's role – as industry prepares for the in-out referendum promised by David Cameron if the Conservatives win the next election.
