ROUGH CUT (NO REPORTER NARRATION) British Prime Minister David Cameron on Saturday (May 14) told supporters of the "In" campaign that European Union membership makes Britain economically stronger and safer. Addressing a group of 'Remain' supporters on what has been touted as the biggest day of campaigning so far, Cameron said the UK's economic security would be better in a reformed European Union, and would be seriously at risk if Britain were to leave. "It's about guaranteeing our economic security here in the United Kingdom. It's the most important thing there is, if we have a strong and secure and growing economy, that is what provides the jobs we need, that is what puts food on the table, that is what guarantees people's livelihoods, that is what pays for great schools like the one we're standing outside today, that's what pays for our health service, what keeps us strong in the world," he said at the event at a school in his constituency of Witney, Oxfordshire. In recent days, the Bank of England said Brexit could push the world's fifth largest economy into recession while the International Monetary Fund said it could start a spiral of weaker growth and lower house and share prices.
