Budget figures are correct as of 2015
'Westminster take note, the nation has spoken!'
Back in March, we challenged you to put the nation's money where your mouth is, by showing how you'd spend the £600bn budget given the chance. And you certainly rose to the challenge. In fact over 10,000 people took part in our Big British Budget survey from right across the country, with fascinating results.
First up, we're definitely living in a nation of health heroes. Everyone, regardless of where they lived, agreed that healthcare should be the number one spending priority and the single largest expenditure in the budget.
But what were the most important issues in different parts of the country? We can now reveal what voters in your region considered the top budget spending priorities and where they thought the nation's pennies could be saved.
As you can see on this map, apart from healthcare, we don't always see eye to eye on where the money should be spent. It's no surprise that the nation's capital London, chock full of weary commuters and eager tourists, puts transport high up the list.
For people in the South West, actively doing more to 'go green' was placed high up the agenda, with the environment and climate change considered more important here than anywhere else.
Law and Order
Keeping the peace ranked highest across the north of England, with Law and Order - including policing and the emergency services - receiving more budget spend here than elsewhere.
And in the Midlands , at the nation's heart, more budget went towards older people than elsewhere. Although overall, spending on older people was cut across the board.
Tax Cuts & Welfare
Over the border, budget for tax cuts was the lowest, which makes sense when you discover that Scotland also put more of the budget towards welfare than any of its neighbours further south.
It will be interesting to see how this Government decides to spend the budget over the next few years and how much the priorities change over time. But right now Westminster take note, the nation has spoken!
