The EU Referendum and EU Reform

March 30, 2016

On 23 June 2016 the people of the United Kingdom will decide whether the country should remain in or leave the European Union. This referendum will be, in the words of the Prime Minister, a “huge decision for our country, perhaps the biggest we will make in our lifetimes”.

The Government’s confirmation that an in/out referendum would be held in June followed intense negotiations with the other 27 Member States and the EU institutions. These culminated in the European Council’s agreement, on 19 February 2016, to a “new settlement for the United Kingdom within the
European Union”.
