A survey of the PR Leaders’ Panel has found that 42% thought the budget would have a positive effect on their business, while 50% were neutral.

The survey also found that 23% said the budget would affect the PR themselves in a positive way, while 28% said it would have a negative effect and 49% remained neutral.

Francis Ingham, PRCA chief executive, said: “These are interesting figures which indicate that the current Downing Street team are delivering their messages rather better than the men who’d like to evict them. PR Leaders think the budget is good for their business and good for the country, even if more of them are going to lose out personally than are going to gain.”

It was also found that 76% trusted David Cameron and George Osborne the most to handle the economy, while only 24% said they would trust Ed Miliband and Ed Balls to handle the current economic circumstances.
