Research by MORI Financial Services (MFS) on attitudes in the UK towards joining the European Monetary Union (EMU) has shown little change over the past five years.
The most recent survey, for Schroder Salomon Smith Barney, asked people how they would vote in a referendum on whether Britain should join a single European currency. More than half (56%) say they would vote no, less than a third (29%) say they would vote yes and a further 15% say they do not know how they would vote.
When asked how they would vote if the Government were to 'strongly urge' Britain should be part of the EMU, a third (35%) say they would vote yes, half (52%) would vote no and 13% say they do not know how they would vote.
Latest polling conducted between 12 and 17 September 2002. Sample size 2,022 people for latest, similar for earlier polls.
