The first section of the paper describes the background to the project. Section 2 describes the rationale and features of the survey method used in the study. Section 3 outlines the survey design. Section 4 discusses the findings from the survey and discusses the policy relevance of the findings. Section 5 discusses the implications of the work for the design of larger stated preference and revealed preference surveys
