CIPFA EU Referendum Survey

ComRes surveyed 1,002 British adults regarding their attitudes on EU membership and its effect on public services.

Similar proportions of Britons believe that membership of the EU is detrimental (36%) and beneficial (31%) to the delivery of public services in the UK.

A plurality of Britons think that UK membership of the EU makes no difference to the quality of higher education (60%), health and social care services (46%), consumer protection (44%) and regional economic development (40%).

Britons are more likely to feel that EU membership puts pressure on public services in the country as a whole, than in their local area.
