Heseltine: IFS report a 'killer blow' for 'Leave' group

The former Conservative Deputy Prime Minister Lord Heseltine has told ITV News today's report by the Institute for Fiscal Studies (IFS) is a "killer blow" for the Leave campaign.

The IFS said Britain could be forced to endure two more years of austerity if voters choose to leave the European Union.

It has predicted that a vote to leave the EU could see public finances hit by between £20 billion and £40 billion in 2019/20, if gross domestic product is 2.1% to 3.5% lower over the period.

Lord Heseltine said: "The IFS report is a killer blow for those arguing to leave Europe. And it confirms report after report...that the threat to British savings, to mortgage rates, to living standards, to public expenditure, is very real."
