Support wanes

COPENHAGEN (AP) - A majority of the Danes still support the Maastricht treaty, but support has shrunk, according to a poll yesterday.

The Berlingske Tidende carried the poll saying 50 per cent of the 1,036 interviewees would approve the treaty if the plebiscite were held now, while 25 per cent would reject it, 20 per cent were undecided and 5 per cent would not vote. Berlingske Tidende said support was shrinking. A poll in February showed 54 per cent supported the treaty.
