Poll: Two thirds of voters in favour of cutting contributions to the EU

Two thirds of voters have backed a cut in British contributions to the EU in a ComRes survey conducted for the Independent on Sunday and Sunday Mirror.

In the poll, 66% said UK payments "should be cut rather than frozen" with 12% against and 22% unsure.

A majority (58%) also agreed that Britain should withdraw from the EU altogether "if some EU powers cannot be restored to the UK", including a 53% majority of Labour voters.
