BRITAIN’S smallest companies are more likely to believe the EU is bad than good, a study showed yesterday.

The study from Opinium Research showed 40 per cent of firms with fewer than nine employees think the EU membership is bad, more than the 38 per cent who favour it. That compares with big businesses, where 57 per cent like membership against 16 per cent who say it is bad.

The general public is also more sceptical than big businesses.
