The poll put Labour at 34 percent of votes, up 5 points from last week’s Survation poll, with the Conservatives steady at 33 percent.

Support for the anti-European Union UK Independence Party (UKIP) had slipped two points to 16 percent, while Cameron’s coalition partners, the Liberal Democrats, fell one point to 9 percent, the newspaper said.
