EU Debate: should we stay or should we go?

Start date: June 15, 2016 5.30pm

Due to popular demand, this event is now fully booked. Although we’re fully booked we wouldn’t want you to miss out, so we’ll be streaming the event live on our website. Bookmark this page ( and visit it from 6pm on 15 June to see the debate.

There’s also still time to take out online poll.


With the EU Referendum fast approaching there will be a lot to digest as both sides of the EU debate battle it out to try and win your vote.

To shed some light on the topic we are hosting a debate on whether Brexit will become a reality or if we will remain.

The debate will be chaired by Sir Michael Snyder who, apart from being a partner at Kingston Smith for 42 years and leading the firm for 37 years – first as Managing Partner and from 1990 as Senior Partner – also served the City of London where he was the Chairman of Policy and Resources, effectively the leader, for over five years.

We also have three speakers who aren’t short of opinion: Lord Flight, Mark Boleat and, to provide a perspective from the continent, Jean-Pierre Larroze.

Lord Howard Flight is a Conservative politician and a member of the House of Lords. As well as this he holds various Director and Chairman positions in commercial organisations.

Mark Boleat is Chairman of the Policy and Resources Committee at the City of London Corporation, leading on policy issues affecting London as a key international financial centre.

Jean-Pierre Larroze is the Managing Partner of French accountancy firm Aplitec and was instrumental in founding an international association of accountancy firms.

We will have a live poll at the end of the debate to see if any of the discussion has helped you reach a decision or, indeed, changed your mind.
