Boris Johnson, mayor of London and a conservative member of British Parliament, testified at a hearing on the economic and financial cost of the United Kingdom’s membership in the European Union (EU). The United Kingdom was scheduled to hold a referendum on June 23, 2016, to determine if the nation would remain in or leave the 28-member EU. The Treasury Committee was one of many committees in the British House of Commons that was exploring the economic and financial implications of the United Kingdom’s EU membership. Mr. Johnson previously announced that he supported the campaign to leave the EU. During this hearing, he responded to questions on the impact of EU membership on United Kingdom employment and the possibility of negotiating free trade deals following an exit from the EU. close
