UK wine trade backs the EU
The Wine and Spirit Trade association surveyed its members and revealed that 90% backed continued EU membership. Only 300 members backed Brexit. Reasons given for not leaving the EU included a more uncertain trading environment, loss of access to a single market and loss of a UK voice at the table shaping EU regulations. David Cameron announced earlier that 600,000 jobs in the UK alcohol industry would be safer if the UK remained in a reformed EU. The message is pretty clear those in the Wine and Spirit industry are keen to remain in the EU ahead of the referendum on 23rd June.
