Liberal Democrats in Bassetlaw have warned that over 6196 local jobs could be at risk if Britain leaves the European Union.
According to a study undertaken by South Bank University over 3 million jobs are dependent on Britain being in the EU and could be under threat if Britain was to pull out. 
Locally here in Bassetlaw, 6196 people’s jobs rely directly on exports to the EU. 
East Midlands MEP, Bill Newton Dunn and the Lib Dems are fighting to deliver a stronger economy that creates more jobs across Britain. Lib Dems in Government have already created over a million private sector jobs since 2010.
Bill Newton Dunn says “Being in Europe supports over three million jobs and brings billions of pounds of investment and trade into the UK . We must not let Britain’s economic recovery and future be ruined by putting this at risk.”
Local Lib Dem spokesman Leon Duveen added, “If UKIP and the Conservatives get their way 6196 people in Bassetlaw could see their jobs lost or go abroad. We cannot allow Britain to sleepwalk out of the EU.”
 Figures are based on the pre-2010 Westminster constituency boundaries
