POLITICS - WHO DO YOU WANT TO FORM THE NEXT GOVERNMENT?

With the general election approaching, 42 per cent of respondents felt an outright Labour victory would be in their best interests - a feeling reflected in the 51 per cent who also thought that Labour had made a big difference to the sector since 1997.

People from large charities were more likely to feel this than those from small ones (56 per cent of those from organisations with annual turnovers in excess of £5m, against 46 per cent of those from organisations with annual turnovers of less than £1m).

Only 13 per cent of respondents said a Conservative government would be best for the sector - less than the proportion who thought the Lib Dems or a hung Parliament would be best. Forty-two per cent of respondents agreed with Labour's philosophy, compared with 33 per cent who backed the Conservative approach.
