ORB conducted a survey in conjunction with the Countryside Alliance exploring the key environmental and rural issues for voters. The headlines are as follows:
- Less than one in six UK adults view animal welfare as an important rural issue, when asked which three issues are the most important for political parties to address. Hospitals and healthcare topped the poll at 49%, followed by local transport links (37%) and affordable housing at 35%.
- Only one in twenty GB adults view fox hunting as an important environmental issue, when asked what three issues are the most important for political parties to address.
Full tables can be accessed here, and rural-only tables here.
The survey was conducted online amongst a sample of 4323 adults, including 1025 rural adults, between 17-23 June.
