An error has been identified in the written answer given on 24 May 2016.

The correct answer should have been:

I refer the Honourable Lady to my earlier answer in response to Question 16 (PQ905054.)

The Government believes that the UK will be stronger, safer and better off remaining in a reformed EU. That way, the UK can play a leading role in one of the world’s largest organisations. Membership of the EU, like our membership of NATO and the UN, amplifies, not diminishes, the UK’s influence in the world.

Does this answer the above question?

Yes0 people think so
