One reason for this is that users of private health care and education also make considerable use of state services, for example NHS emergency services or state primary schools. Another possible explanation is that some private welfare users may be strong supporters of public welfare, who would prefer higher state spending to achieve better public services, but opt out because they are not satisfied with the quality of public services. 22 BRITISH SOCIAL ATTITUDES Only in the case of pensions is there some evidence that those with private pensions (or those who expect most of their income in retirement to come from private pensions) are less likely to support higher public spending on pensions than those who are (or expect to be) dependent on a state pension.

However, there does appear to be a growing divide in attitudes towards the welfare state along a different dimension within society: age. Over this period, younger people have become less favourable towards increases in public spending and harder in their attitudes towards the benefits system, relative to older generations. This difference in attitudes may be confined to this particular cohort who grew up in the 1980s – ‘Thatcher’s children’. Alternatively, this trend may signal the beginning of a long-term decline in support for the welfare state – with successive generations being less enthusiastic about a welfare state that increasingly falls short of their rising expectations.
