Liberal Democrat leader Rt Hon Sir Vince Cable MP visited Birmingham City University’s Centre for Brexit Studies on 28/7/17 as one of his first public engagements as leader of the party.

Sir Vince spoke in front of staff, students, members of the public and business leaders to outline the important decisions he believes face the UK today following its vote to leave the European Union.

The former Business Secretary and Strictly Come Dancing contestant was officially confirmed as Lib Dem leader on July 20, and has already highlighted Brexit as the major issue confronting the country today.

Sir Vince engaged in questions and answers from an invited audience, and was given a tour of the University’s facilities to learn more about how staff are training students for the workplace and helping to underpin economic growth in the West Midlands and beyond.

His visit is the latest in a series of special guest speakers to attend the Centre for Brexit Studies and provide opinion and insight into the Brexit debate and the future of the UK’s relationship with the European Union.

Professor Alex de Ruyter, Director of Birmingham City University’s Centre for Brexit Studies, said: “Having Sir Vince visit us so soon after being named as leader, shows just how significant he considers Brexit to be and reaffirms how important it is that we have these kind of discussions about the biggest issue facing the UK today.
