More than 95 per cent of Suffolk firms have said withdrawing from the EU would be bad for the regional economy.
The results in a poll by the British Chamber of Commerce, also found that 64 per cent of firms said although we should remain in the EU, specific powers should be transfered back to Westminster.
“Business have spoken clearly in this survey,” said Suffolk chamber chief executive John Dugmore. “They have said that to encourage growth and create jobs, to cut red tape on employment, health and safety law should be the responsibility of the UK Government, not Brussels.
“Business is telling us that withdrawing from the EU would be bad for business.
“We know in the main, that as part of our Exporting is Good for Suffolk campaign, that being part of the EU is viewed as opening doors for exporters.”
