Lord Rose: EU exit may mean wage rises

Labour MP Wes Streeting asked Lord Rose, the head of the pro-EU campaign group Britain Stronger in Europe, whether leaving the EU would result in a rise in wages for low-skilled workers in the UK.

The former M&S boss agreed that any restriction in available labour could lead to such an increase, before adding - at a Treasury select committee session - "that's not necessarily a good thing".
