Only 15% of MPs believe Brexit has made Welsh independence more likely, according to an opinion poll of elected representatives at Westminster.

That’s despite support for Welsh independence rising to its highest ever level and campaign group YesCymru amassing 18,000 members in the four years since the UK voted for Brexit.

Meanwhile, 51% of MPs believe Scottish independence is now more likely as a result of Brexit, according to the poll by Savanta ComRes.

On Irish reunification, 51% of MPs say it is more likely following Brexit.

The results come after the same polling firm showed the highest support for independence ever recorded in March.

39% of Welsh people told ComRes they would now vote ‘yes’ in a referendum.

Excluding don’t know answers, 39% said they would vote ‘Yes’ if a referendum was held tomorrow. This outstrips the previous high of 32% in a YouGov poll in August 2020.
