Danes dubious about euro, common EU defence

Danes remain dubious about the euro, and public support for a common EU defence policy is also declining, a new opinion poll reveals.

Public support for joining the euro zone stood at 54 per cent in early May, compared with 57 per cent in February, the poll showed. 35 per cent of Danes were opposed the euro. Support for a common EU defence policy fell sharply from 54 per cent in February to 48 per cent in early May.

The Danish government has said a referendum on the issue would not be held before 2004-2005. Sweden will hold a referendum on 14 September.
