Public Service Cuts - did we notice? The Voice of Rural Parishes

The BBC surveyed over 1000 people in a poll asking them about public service cuts
The Headline from the results state:

“Many people in the UK think the quality of public services overall have been maintained or improved in the past five years despite government cuts”

The LGA response to these findings:      

"The Local Government Association says overall the results are testament to the resilience of councils, but says that unless finances become sustainable, satisfaction levels will decline."

The Rural Services Network repeated this BBC survey with its network of Rural Parish Councils using exactly the same questions and received over 1200 responses
A report detailing and contrasting findings between the surveys can be downloaded here
