Siobhan Benita discusses EU referendum on BBC Newsnight

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

Watch on BBC iPlayer

You can watch the full episode on the BBC iPlayer (available till mid-May). Siobhan’s appearance is at 27 minutes.
