A Communicate Research poll for this morning’s Independent on Sunday finds the public evenly divided on the taxation of air travel.  49% disagree that air travel should become more expensive to help slow climate change.  48% agree.

There is little difference across social classes.  AB voters agree 52% to 47% with more expensive air travel with C2s disagreeing by 52% to 45%.  Tory voters oppose taxation of air travel by 51% to 48%.  LibDem voters support the idea (which has just become their party’s policy) by 60% to 38%.  Labour voters are evenly divided: 49% to 49%.

The same poll finds that most voters (46% to 38%) view David Cameron’s concern for the environment as a deeply-held conviction.
