Siobhan Benita discusses EU referendum on BBC NewsnightTuesday 12 Apr 2016
Siobhan Benita appeared on BBC Newsnight last night in a discussion on the EU referendum.
It was the first in a series of debates the programme is having about the referendum and last night’s debate was on the issue of British Sovereignty.
When discussing EU law, Siobhan commented that:
Laws don't get imposed upon us. We are there negotiating around the table, negotiating on each of those laws as they come in. It's a misunderstanding to say somehow these things are done to us.... In my time in the civil service the EU played a very small part in the policies coming across my desk
