This paper presents the results of an exercise designed to help fill the gap in our knowledge of public opinion on what Brexit should mean. We report on how a representative sample of voters responded between mid-September and mid-October to a wide range of questions on what they would like to be included in the agreements that will now have to be negotiated between the UK and the EU.
- Nine in ten people would like free trade with EU countries to continue.
- But at the same time, as many as seven in ten (70%) think the UK should be able to limit the number of people from the EU who come here to live and work, including 55% of people who voted
to remain in the EU.
- The public is split over whether Britain should accept freedom of movement of people
in exchange for free trade with EU countries.
- This split is even clearer when we look at those who voted to remain in the EU and those who voted to leave.
