THE Spectator Poll is designed to elicit the opinions, not of the general public, but of those holding senior positions in Britain, those who take important deci- sions and whose views are likely to influence public policy. The 152 respon- dents to this poll were drawn from the City, business and industry, the trade unions, the press and television, the universities, the law, medicine, the arts, the clergy and the Civil Service. Field- work was carried out by the Harris Research Centre between 20 and 27 March. The survey was co-ordinated by CDP Financial Partnership.
