Leaving EU will put UK at economic risk, says Treasury officials

The officials from Treasury have warned the government not to leave EU.

According to senior government source, Treasury’s Permanent Secretary, Sir Nicholas Macpherson has said leaving the EU would have unwanted economic affect for the UK, reported media.

It, however, has led anti-European Conservative MPs to accuse Treasury officials of trying to ‘scare’ the public in favour of a Yes vote.

“Just as the Treasury has played a leading role in setting out the implications of Scotland leaving the free trade area that is the [UK], so would I expect it to play a critical role in setting out the economic implications of the options of staying in or leaving the EU,” Sir Nicholas was quoted by media as saying.
