60pc want more done on inflation

Sixty per cent of people polled by the Democratic Party said they were not satisfied with the government's policies for tackling inflation. The party asked 779 people about the difficulties inflation had caused them. Fifty-two per cent said they had felt a significant impact; 70 per cent said rising food prices had affected them most. Forty per cent believed the government could do more to curb inflation by holding down prices for public services. The party said the administration should give the middle class tax rebates and help the disadvantaged.
