I’ve been working with Mark on an online version of the cost of living survey that he recently put in the Hampshire Chronicle.
Surveys are still coming in and we are still collating the full results, but Mark already used the early results in a debate on the cost of living on July 9th.
All the survey responses to date have helped give a clear picture of the pressures that people locally are facing.
It’s a very long time since we’ve seen such rapid increases in food and fuel prices – combined with continued increases in council tax and fares. For obvious reasons, both Mark and I are very keen to see that the views and situation of local people are properly represented in Parliament.
If you want to read or see the speech Mark made referencing the survey, it’s available online at TheyWorkForYou.com.
