•Assessments by independent economists show that whilst there may be jobs related to trade with the EU, not its membership, there are 2 million more jobs dependent on Britain carrying on trading with the EU than vice versa.

•House of Commons library also set out the following in a briefing note in June 2015:

“It is important to note that this estimate is the number of jobs related to trade with other EU member states. This is not the same as saying that over three million jobs are dependent on the UK’s EU membership, since some trade with EU countries would take place even if the UK withdrew from the single market. In response to a Freedom of Information request, the Treasury made this point, telling Open Europe that the 3.3 million figure was “not an estimate of the impact of EU membership on employment”.
