16.5 million believe state provides adequate safety net

As many as 16.5 million (one in three) Brits believe that the State welfare system provides an adequate safety net for a modern standard of living, according to research commissioned by Scottish Provident.

The report reveals that in the five years since it was last commissioned, there has been a huge jump in the number of people who are willing to believe that the State would provide an adequate safety net for today's lifestyle needs. In 2003, just 1 in 5 people said they believe that the state provides an adequate safety net for modern standards of living. Today this figure has risen to more than a third.
