Ipsos MORI Political Monitor - November 2016

1,973 views

Published on

Weeks after the High Court’s decision requiring the government to receive parliamentary approval before Article 50 is triggered, Ipsos MORI’s new Political Monitor reveals the public are split when it comes to what role parliament should take when initiating the start to Britain’s exit from the European Union. Even so, Britons are on balance critical of the government’s handling of Brexit.

Forty-four percent believe that parliament’s role should be to only vote on triggering Article 50, while 37% think that parliament should have a further role telling the government what terms Britain’s future relationship with the EU should be. Opinion is largely divided along those groups who either voted for Leave or Remain. Three in five (61%) Conservative supporters believe parliament should only vote on triggering Article 50 compared with three in five Labour supporters (60%) and 53% Lib Dem supporters who want parliament to have more of a role setting the terms of the negotiations. Half (51%) of those without a qualification also want parliament to just vote on triggering Article 50, while half (51%) of graduates want parliament to determine the terms of Britain’s future relationship with the EU.

It applies to benefits such as child tax credit, housing benefit, jobseeker's allowance and income support, but excludes others such as disability living allowance. Earlier this month the maximum amount a household could receive was reduced from £26,000 per year to £20,000 outside London (and £23,000 inside London).

  29. 29. Political Monitor | November 2016 | FINAL | Public | 29 As you may know, formal negotiations over Britain’s exit from the European Union cannot begin until Britain gives official notice that it intends to leave, under Article 50 of the treaty. Recently, the High Court has said that the government may not trigger Article 50 without a vote in favour from parliament. Some MPs and peers also want the vote to be about the terms of Britain’s future relationship with the EU, while others think the Government should be left to negotiate the terms as it sees best.
