A MORI poll has shown limited support for increased taxes to support the NHS. Of a sample of 2,014 adults questioned, 74 per cent said the National Lottery was their prefered option for additional funds, while 42 per cent supported diverting money from other areas of government spending and a quarter supported increased taxes. A tax rise was more popular with men than women, those aged over 45 rather than those aged 15-34, and those in upper income brackets. British Medical Association treasurer Dr James Appleyard said it would consider the results as part of its review of NHS spending.
