The majority of Brits feel the Government should concentrate on promoting economic growth rather than keeping inflation low, according to an ITV News Index poll carried out by ComRes.
Of those questioned:
- 65% believe promoting economic growth should be the Government's priority
- 25% feel the Government should focus on keeping inflation low
- 10% said they didn't know
Women are slightly more likely than men to be in favour of focusing on keeping inflation low. The poll suggests 27% of women feel inflation should be the Government's priority, compared with 22% of men.
It also found that younger people are more likely than older age groups to believe low inflation should be prioritised. Of those questioned, 34% of 18-24 year olds agreed compared to 15% aged 65 and over.
ComRes interviewed 2,053 adults online from 14-16 December.
