4,964 views

Published on

January 2013: Over half of Scots (58%) think there should be a referendum on Britain’s membership of the European Union (EU) compared with just over a third who disagree (36%). Support for a referendum is highest among those living in Scotland’s most deprived areas, those aged 55 and over (64%) and men (62%). Conservative and SNP voters are also more likely to think there should be a referendum (65% and 63% respectively).
