    Tashema Jackson, from uSwitch, which produced the survey, said: "For many consumers, the prospect of increased uncertainty in the run-up to Brexit may be a turning point, leading us to re-evaluate both how we manage our household budgets and how we provide stability for our families in the future."

    The results were based on things like employment, primary schools, access to GPs and council tax - all considered important to family life.
