Last week’s poll: the 2016 Autumn Statement

Last week Philip Hammond presented his Autumn Statement to the House of Commons, prompting The Engineer to canvass its readers on what they wanted to hear from the chancellor.

A total of 41 per cent thought Hammond should prioritise public sector infrastructure, followed by 28 per cent who favoured a target of three per cent of GDP invested into R&D.

Of the remaining 31 per cent, 12 per cent thought incentives for STEM careers access a priority, and six per cent thought a cut in fuel duty should take precedence.

The remaining 13 per cent couldn’t find a fit with the options presented, opting instead for ‘none of the above’.
