Public opinion is swinging in favour of joining the single currency - and would be more positive if the Government were urging membership, according to MORI poll.

The poll for the investment bank Salomon Brothers showed that the majority against Britain joining the Euro has fallen to its lowest for more than three years, with 30 per cent in favour, 52 per cent against and 18 per cent "don't knows". The majority against, 22 per cent, compares with 27 per cent in October, with the shift concentrated on the AB social group.
