Associated British Ports EU oversight of ports survey

Survey of adults across six European countries on EU oversight of ports on behalf of ABPorts

  • National opinion across the six countries is in favour of individual EU countries (66%), not the EU (22%), having oversight of commercial sea ports in the countries where the ports are based.
  • This sentiment is strongest in Britain (74%) and Germany (71%), although a majority in every country would rather see national oversight, rather than oversight from the EU.

ComRes surveyed 4,506 adults aged 18+ in six EU member countries, Britain (2,000), France (500), Germany (500), Spain (500), Italy (500) and Poland (500), between 19th and 26th February 2016. Data for each country were weighted to be representative of all adults aged 18+ in that country. In the overall figures, the larger number of responses in Britain is weighted down to be equal to those in each other country.
