The majority of Finns support cutting spending on immigration, development cooperation and international crisis management tasks, according to a survey commissioned by a number of newspapers.

Instead, 64 per cent of respondents will increase spending on social welfare and health care, 55 per cent would want more funding in education and research, 45 per cent on police and rescue services and 42 per cent would want increased funding for construction and acquaintance of roads and railways.
 
The survey was conducted by research specialists Tietoykkönen between January and February.
 
The survey was commissioned by the Finnish language newspapers Keskisuomalainen, Savon Sanomat, Etelä-Suomen Sanomat, Karjalainen and Keskisuomalainen.
