BRITISH people will not be able to live in Spain if the UK exits the EU, a minister has claimed.
David Lidington, UK’s Europe minister, warned that a Brexit would lead to a ‘decade of economic chaos’.
He claimed that ‘everything we take for granted’ including free movement between European countries will be ‘in jeopardy’.
“Everything we take for granted about access to the single market – trade taking place without customs checks or paperwork at national frontiers, the right of British citizens to go and live in Spain or France – those would all be up in the air. It is massive. It is massive what is at risk,” he said.
“Trade deals between the EU and other countries and bilateral trade deals of any type normally take six, seven, eight years and counting.”
An EU referendum is set to take place on June 23.
