Brexit could bring £65 billion windfall

A paper produced by the Economists for Free Trade Group says Britain could gain a £ 65bn windfall from Brexit if the chancellor seizes its `economic opportunities`. The Group said its own modelling showed `long run gains` including a fall in prices after abandoning EU tariffs on goods outside of Europe, `improved export performance`, less red tape, and `an end to the annual EU subscription of £10bn. The Group believes this would combine to `push growth up to nearly 3% per annum by the mid-2020s` – The Sunday Telegraph – The Sun – Sunday Express
