A majority of people in Britain would vote against joining the single European currency if there were a referendum, according to new research from MORI. As part of regular research for Schroder Salomon Smith Barney, the results show no significant change since the last figures two months ago, and -- indeed -- no significant change since the survey carried out in February/March 2002.
More than half (56%) of people in Britain would vote against joining the Euro, and almost a third (30%) would vote in favour. A further 13% say they do not know how they would vote.
When asked how they would vote 'if the Government were to strongly urge that Britain should be part of a single European currency', there is a slight rise of four per cent -- to 34% -- of those who would vote yes, and a fall of four per cent -- to 52% -- of those who would vote no. A steady 13% maintain they do no know how they would vote.
