A CROSS-PARTY campaign for a referendum on Britain's membership of the European Union was launched today.
The People's Pledge is asking voters to sign up to its promise only to support candidates at the next general election who back a public vote - which would be binding on the government - on whether Britain should stay in the EU or leave.
The campaign's website will break down voters' pledges by parliamentary seat, enabling MPs and candidates to see the level of support in their constituency.
A YouGov poll of 2,436 voters carried out for the campaign found that 61 per cent of voters would support a referendum, against 25 per cent opposing it.
Among supporters listed on the campaign website are Labour's former Europe minister Keith Vaz, Green Party leader Caroline Lucas and Conservative MP Zac Goldsmith.
Fire Minister Brandon Lewis probably had a fair idea what Sir Ken Knight would deliver when he asked him to conduct an "independent" report into fire and rescue services in England.
