UK voters believe the government has coped well in dealing with the current outbreak of foot and mouth disease, but a majority also believe more needs to be done to support the farming community.

An ICM survey prepared for BBC News Online suggests that despite the crisis more than sixty per cent say the Prime Minister should go ahead with a spring election.

A detailed breakdown of the survey results can be seen below.

ICM interviewed 1032 adults aged 18+ by telephone and via the Internet between the 8th and 10th March 2001. Interviews were conducted across the country and the results have been weighted to the profile of all adults.
Q.1 Which party do you trust to run the NHS most effectively
Q.2 Which party do you trust to run state schools most effectively?
Q.3 Which party do you trust to best manage the economy?
Q.4 Which party do you think has the best polices to tackle crime?
Q.5 Which party do you think will best protect the UK's interests in the European Union?
Q.6 Which party do you think has the best Public Transport policies?
Q.7 Which party do you think has the best policies regarding asylum seekers?
Q.8 Do you think the government is taking the appropriate actions to deal with the current foot and mouth crisis?
Q.9 Do you think the government is giving farmers the necessary support to deal with the foot and mouth crisis?
Q.10 Do you think the government should go ahead with a general election in May despite the recent foot and mouth crisis?
Q.11 How likely is it that you will vote in an immediate general election?
