William Dartmouth MEP, the UKIP trade spokesman has called for transparency from the CBI about their recent study completed by PriceWaterHouseCoopers (PWC).
"It would be instructive if the CBI would publish the instruction they gave to PWC when they contracted this study. The study is, as we know based on old, out of date and superseded OBR figures. We know that the CBI has a track record of using inflated and irrelevant figures with its previous study being torn apart for deliberate error by the House of Commons Select Committee. And we also know that PWC earns tens of millions of pounds a year from its relationship with the European Union.
The CBI wish to create a climate of doubt in order to protect their own bottom line, and to ensure the continued flow of low skilled migration that keeps wages down and corporate profits high. If they want to be believed, even in the slightest, perhaps they should show the world exactly what they asked PWC to provide".
