With the UK referendum on EU membership in June 2016 fast approaching, Chatham House hosted a special debate among four senior UK politicians: two in favour of leaving and two arguing that Britain should remain.

The speakers each briefly presented their core arguments before taking part in a moderated discussion, debating the key points raised during their remarks.

Attendees had a chance to put their own questions and counter-arguments to the panel.

+ Remain:
- Caroline Lucas, Member of Parliament, Green Party
- Hilary Benn, Member of Parliament and Shadow Foreign Secretary, Labour Party

+ Leave:
- Chris Grayling, Member of Parliament, Conservative Party; Leader of the House of Commons
- Suzanne Evans, Parliamentary Spokesperson, UKIP

Chair: Nick Watt, Political Editor, BBC Newsnight
