ComRes Survey

There’s some new polling on what people here in Wales think, feel and fear about the economic future, about cuts in public spending and how the UK Government is carrying out those changes.

It comes courtesy of the ITV News Index – a joint project with pollsters ComRes which is tracking attitudes towards the way public services are changing.

What we have today is the annual update – comparing attitudes with a year ago when the Chancellor unveiled his Comprehensive Spending Review. Below is the breakdown for Wales on a number of key questions alongside a comparison with the UK figures. You can see the poll in full on the ComRes website.
