Speaking afterwards, Ms Fernandes said: ‘The referendum, needless to say, is the most important decision that all generations will have.

‘I see it as ‘a once in a lifetime’ decision and I have spent a lot of time thinking about both sides of the argument, because it will define Britain’s place in the world for future generations.

‘I have come to my own conclusion that I will be voting to leave in the referendum next month, but it’s not up to me to decide.’
