The research brief:
The Home Office is calling for research proposals to design a survey to investigate how the public feel about COVID-19 restrictions. In view of rising numbers of COVID-19 cases, the Home Office is keen to know the following:

Should there be tougher penalties on people who do not comply with COVID-19 regulations?
The brief needs to provide the following information:
Clear aims for the research and specify the research question
