The April Policy Voice survey addressed the topics of the UK’s relationship with the European Union. Below are some of the survey highlights:

  • 61% say an EU referendum will cause uncertainty for their business – but 51% want an in-out vote anyway
  • 58% state business links with the EU are important to their company
  • But only 13% see the EU as presently offering a viable socio-economic model
  • 51% would vote to stay in the EU only on the basis of meaningful reform being secured
  • 65% believe the benefits of the UK remaining a full member of the EU outweigh the negatives
  • 51% would find British withdrawal from the EU a significant challenge for their business
