SNAP POLL: 65% OF EXPO GOERS SURVEYED WANT TO STAY IN THE EU

Home / News & Opportunities / Chamber News

Date: 11/03/2016

Nearly two-thirds (65%) of businesspeople polled at the Chamber Business Expo last Thursday revealed they would vote to stay in the EU.

Herefordshire & Worcestershire Chamber of Commerce held an EU Referendum snap poll at their highly regarded business expo on Thursday 3 March 2016. Over 100 businesses cast their vote and the overwhelming majority expressed a wish to stay in the EU. 24% of businesspeople asked wanted to leave the EU and 11% did not know how to vote. 

A recent British Chambers of Commerce survey carried out UK wide between the 25 January and 4 February 2016 revealed that 60% of business leaders would vote to stay in the EU and 30% would leave.

In light of recent events Herefordshire & Worcestershire Chamber of Commerce would like to confirm that the Chamber is a neutral, apolitical organisation which provides its members and businesses in the community with information, advice and debate to enable them to make an informed decision. The Chamber will not be campaigning for either side due to the diverse views of our membership.
