Britain has fallen to 25th Position in the Quality of Life Index

Several publictions have been reporting on the 'Quality of Life Index, produced by International Living Magazine' which shows that Britain has fallen to 25th position from 20th position last year. It is placed behind some of the old communist countries.

The index has been produced for 30 years in which 192 countries are surveyed on nine catagories; Cost of Living, Culture and Leisure, Economy, Environment, Freedom, Health, Infrastructure, Safety and Risk, and Climate.. Britain does not top a single category in the survey, which is compiled using official government statistics, including data from the World Health Organisation and the views of the magazine's editors around the globe.

France for the fourthyear is placed in 1st position. Spain is shown in 17th position 8 places ahead of Britain.
