Dana Peters, National Organiser for the Conservative Group for Europe, explains the organisation's beliefs.
The Conservative Group for Europe is presently the most active pro-EU movement in the party political scene. Founded over 30 years ago, the CGE exists to promote Britain’s active and positive membership of the European Union; a Europe built on Conservative principles of a free-market, business and individual opportunity and a responsible engagement in world affairs.
The CGE upholds the Party’s pro-European spirit within a framework of serious discussion and debate on the issues affecting the nature and shape of the European Union and importantly, Britain’s place in it. Indeed there is no doubt that the future direction of the European Union will have a major impact on the political landscape of the UK: Completion of the single market, enlargement, climate change and security are some of the salient challenges which Member States will confront over the coming years and we as British Conservatives should be at the forefront of those advocating sensible and workable solutions.
