Scottish Labour for the Single Market co-chair Ian Murray MP said:
“This is a hugely significant survey which must serve as an urgent wake-up call to Scottish Labour and the UK leadership.
“More than two-thirds of voters want the UK to remain in the Single Market because they know 80,000 jobs in Scotland depend on it, it delivers hard-won rights for hundreds of thousands of workers, and is the only way to prevent a hard border with Ireland.
“There is no such thing as a good Brexit, but the least-worst option for our economy and for jobs is permanent membership of the Single Market and the Customs Union.
“Time is running out for Labour to stand up for the people we represent and ensure we defeat Theresa May’s plans for a hard Brexit.”
