Membership of the EU is good for Britain. Good for business, good for the environment, good for our people and good for the country. It is a fact that increasing numbers of people work for companies that rely on the trade and investment that the single market brings. Many people also benefit from EU funded education, training and environmental projects.
The 'Britain & the EU' area of this website provides an introduction to the EU - its institutions and Member States, information on EU policies, the enlargement process and the EU's relationship with the rest of the world, recent developments in the Union, and initiatives launched by the Minister for Europe.
