ITV News press release
Today the latest Index poll conducted by ComRes for ITV News at Ten reveals that the majority (65%) of the British public believe that the Government should currently be focusing on promoting economic growth rather than keeping inflation low (25%). One in ten (10%) do not know.
Women are slightly more likely than men to favour keeping inflation low (27% compared with 22% respectively). People in the younger age groups are more likely than those in the older age groups to think that the Government should prioritise keeping inflation low: 34% of those aged 18 to 24 say that they should prioritise this, compared to 15% among those aged 65 and over.
The latest results also show that nearly two in five (37%) currently believe that the way the Government is going about cutting public spending is fair. This is the highest recorded score since we asked this question in October 2010, when the figure stood at 40%.
