Spending Plan Poll

Thank you to everyone who voted in our Spending Plan Poll. Here is the final result:

Cut Quangos, Scrap HS2, Abolish DfID
1) Cut the number, scope and budgets of Quangos and public bodies (19%)
2) Scrap HS2 (18%)
3) Abolish the Department for International Development, scrap development aid and transfer humanitarian responsibilities to Foreign & Commonwealth Office and Ministry of Defence (17%)
4) Reduce the welfare cap to £20,000 (11%)

All other policies received less than 5% of the vote share.

Altogether, implementing just these 4 policies would save over £20 billion from the deficit.

Thank you very much for letting us know what you thought of our policies, hopefully even if you didn't vote for one of these options yourself you can agree with at least one of them.
