The Independent: Direct investment in UK from EU companies created over 110,000 new jobs since 2012, new figures show

Direct investment in the UK from European companies has created over 110,000 new jobs in the last five years and safeguarded a further 80,000, according to the Government’s own figures. While Liam Fox, the International Trade Secretary, has previously cited FDI as a reason to be optimistic about investment in Britain, the figures do also show how the UK could be severely affected by crashing out of the EU in the event of Brexit negotiations collapsing.

“Leaving the single market will make it harder it harder for European companies to invest in Britain and any new barriers to trade will put British jobs at risk and damage our economy.

Yahoo News UK: Britain’s National Heritage: Buildings given listed status to mark 70th anniversary

A cabbie shelter in London is among several places granted protected status to mark 70 years since the listed building system was first introduced.

Others added to the National Heritage List for England include a First World War wireless station and an underground “hobbit house” – Britain’s first modern earth-sheltered home.

The listing system was established under the Town and Country Planning Act of 1947 to protect historic buildings after heavy bombing in the Second World War.

Five places have been listed at Grade II by the Department for Digital, Culture, Media and Sport, on the advice of Historic England, to celebrate the 70th anniversary.
