The question in our monthly survey was: do you think that there should be an In/Out EU Referendum in October 2014?
The answers are as follows:
Yes: 35 per cent.
No. I think the Referendum should take place earlier than 2017, but not in October 2014: 22 per cent.
No. I think there should be a Referendum in 2017: 35 per cent.
No. I don’t think there should be an In/Out Referendum at all: 7 per cent.
Don’t know: 1 per cent.
That’s just over a third of respondents for Adam Afriyie and David Cameron’s positions respectively, with under a quarter in between.
Perhaps more importantly, over half of them want a vote before the date set by the Party leader.
The debate on Afriyie’s proposed amendment to James Wharton’s Bill, which would amend it to bring forward the date of the referendum, is due to take place tomorrow.
Almost 700 Party members responded to our survey when it was sent out last week.
