Local firms back would prefer Remain vote

Survey shows two thirds of companies advocate UK in the EU

A majority of businesses on the Island would prefer Britain to remain in the EU.

That's according to a survey carried out by the Chamber of Commerce on the Island.

Sixty-six percent of respondents believe the UK should remain in the EU.

Mike Crow from accountants Grant Thornton, says this mirrors the results of surveys they carry out in the UK and Europe, and also shows the amount of direct trade local firms have with European businesses.
