The survey, carried out among 1,022 participants in July and August, also explored how British consumers feel about cuts in local authority spending - affordable housing a preferred focus here - and monitors changes in how they expect their personal spending to change in a time of rising interest rates (a greater willingness to cut back on fags, booze and fuel).
Voters were subtantially more likely to vote for cuts to VAT - marginally ahead of spending on elderly care - than defence or high-speed rail.
The full survey is available to professional investors and media from the Liberum Media team led by Ian Whittaker. Email the team here >>
