EU referendum 'would slash UKIP support'

David Cameron could slash Ukip's support by more than a third if he promises an in-out referendum on EU membership, according to a new poll.

Research by ComRes for the Sunday People found 63% of the public want a vote on whether Britain should remain in the union.

Some 33% said they would cast their ballot in favour of a full withdrawal - including two thirds of Ukip supporters, 27% of Tories, 25% of Labour voters, and 17% of Liberal Democrats.

However, more people - 42% said they were against leaving the EU.
