Our Media Wales poll shows support in Wales for a soft Brexit is increasing

More than twice as many people in Wales now say keeping free access to the European Single Market is more important to them than restricting the right of people from EU countries to work in the UK, according to our latest opinion poll for the Western Mail.

In the survey on our June Wales Omnibus, a representative sample of 1,008 adults across Wales were given two options – keeping free access to the Single Market, so that the UK can continue to sell goods and services without incurring tariffs or other obstacles to trade, while allowing citizens from all EU countries to work in the UK; or restricting the right of people from EU countries to work in the UK, but not having free access to the Single Market.

60% of those questioned backed the first option, with 27% favouring the second and 13% saying they don’t know. Support for a soft Brexit has risen from 54% in November 2016, when we asked the same question.
