More than a quarter of retailers haven’t yet made up their minds whether to vote to Brexit or to Bremain, according to a new survey among the 6,000 members of the British Independent Retailers Association (bira).
Asked the question that will be posed in the referendum, plus a third option (Don’t know) that will not be on the voting card, more voted to remain than to leave, but not by a decisive margin.
Nearly three in ten haven’t made their minds up – which makes for a fascinating run-up to the big day on 23 June.
Alan Hawkins, bira CEO commented: “Our survey shows that it’s all to play for. A momentous decision will be made on in the June referendum and our survey shows that many still have yet to make up their minds.
“It will be fascinating to see how many more have come to a decision by the time of our conference debate and poll in just two weeks’ time.”
