A third of chief execs reject move to euro

A new poll of UK chief executives has found that almost a third do not want to join the new single currency, now, or at any time in the future.

Link: FDs demand euro vote this year

Of the 501 chief executives questioned, 29% said membership of the euro should be ruled out all together, while 12% were in favour of joining at some stage, with 39% preferring to keep their options open.

Only one in five CEs were in favour of joining the euro in this parliament.

The poll was undertaken by ICM on behalf of the No campaign, vehement opponents of Britain joining the single European currency.

An Accountancy Age/Reed Accountancy Personnel Big Question survey conducted in January found that an overwhelming majority – 61% – of FDs wanted a vote this year on whether to join the euro, just two weeks after the currency was introduced across much of Europe.
