The figures are Labour 41%, Conservative 20%, Reform 15%, Liberal Democrats 11%, Green 8%, SNP 3%, Plaid Cymru 1% and other parties 1%.

A more recent poll by Norstat, carried out online from Monday June 10 to Wednesday June 12 among 1,017 adults in Britain, puts Labour 20 points ahead of the Tories.
