VOTING to leave the EU to control immigration is simplistic and fails to consider the serious problems Parliament will have to resolve after Brexit (The Yorkshire Post, June 15).

Faced with the possible pressures on the economy, sterling, jobs, and trade deals, the last thing this country needs is a Parliament tearing itself to pieces as the good ship Great Britain sails through uncharted waters.

From: David Craggs, Shafton Gate, Rotherham.

THOUGH the financial and sovereignty consequences have been poorly explained, we do understand the consequences of a substantial increase in immigration. We do know that it will put extra pressure on housing, schools, jobs and the Health Service. And unfortunately many will base the way they vote on just this one issue. To them, and I hesitate to use that most horrible of expressions, it is a ‘no brainer’.

From: Phyllis Capstick, Hellifield, Skipton.

AN Australian politician, Senator James Paterson, has made a passionate case for Britain to leave the EU and that we can rely on our friends in Australia, New Zealand and Canada to support us with trade deals. I would advise everyone in this country who values our freedom to listen.

From: JA King, Thurgoland .

IF, when we vote next Thursday, the result is for exit from the European Union, we then need a General Election to elect new Members of Parliament who would be able and willing to govern without the aid of the EU.

From: Will Podmore, Wanstead, London.

THE EU does not guarantee our rights. Ask any Greek still in work whether the EU guarantees their rights.

From: Hugh Rogers, Ashby.

OUR departure from the iniquitous EU will have to be negotiated. It will certainly not happen overnight. Talk, in Treasury circles, of “emergency budgets” is scaremongering of epic and, in my opinion, shameful, proportions.

From: Tony Rossiter, Leyburn.

CUTTING ourselves off from our economic base, the EU’s tariff-free single market – without any certainty whatsoever about future trading arrangements– would be shooting ourselves in the foot.
