Remaining within the single market

Workers’ rights, consumer safety rules and environmental protections are not just 'add ons' to membership of the single market, they are integral to it. 

These are not "red tape", but essential protections that improve lives and ensure their safety and security.

We don't want to see these swept aside by the UK government, or pushed aside by trade deals with other states if we leave the EU. 

These were the kinds of threats posed by the proposed EU-US free trade deal known as TTIP, which Natalie campaigned hard against, and which loom again if the UK doesn't change course. 

The UK government was dragged into a ban on the neonicotinoid pesticides that threaten our bees and other pollinators by EU rules. This is just one example of the ways in which our environment has been protected.
