Should Britain stay or should it go when it comes to Europe?Advertisement
There’s a division between senior figures at the University of Central Lancashire as the university’s vice-chancellor is set to debate with one of its economics professors on the issue.
Professor Mike Thomas, vice-chancellor, and Preston MP Mark Hendrick, are both speaking for the UK staying in the EU.
In the opposing corner will be Phil Whyman, professor of economics at the Preston-based university, and Dr Mark Bainbridge, senior economics lecturer at the University of Bradford, want to see an exit from Europe.
