  • When asked about UK government priorities with regards to public spending, only 1 in 5 adults (19%) say that the UK government should prioritise nationalising private companies.
  • 3 in 10 GB adults (31%) say that water and sewage companies should be prioritised for nationalisation if the UK government were to nationalise services currently provided by private companies – fourth of five options.
