HC Deb 12 May 1983 vol 42 cc433-4W
Mr. Forman

asked the Secretary of State for Foreign and Commonwealth Affairs whether his Department has recently sponsored any survey of public opinion in the United Kingdom towards overseas aid; and if he will make a statement.

Mr. Raison

A public opinion poll sponsored by the Overseas Development Administration and commissioned by the Office of Population, Censuses and Surveys, was recently undertaken as part of a Gallup poll omnibus survey. The fieldwork was done in January 1983 and based on a sample population of 1,862. I have placed copies of the results of the survey in the Library of both Houses.
