LONDON - The British Labour party is on course to win a 56-seat majority at the next election, according to a major new poll from Savanta ComRes.

Voting intention shows Labour in the lead with 45%, the Conservatives at 33%, the Liberal Democrats at 10%, the Greens at 4% and Reform at 3%.

The modelling suggested that with such a lead, Labour would regain many so-called Red Wall seats. The i news site said the results will “pile pressure” on Liz Truss and Kwasi Kwarteng to demonstrate that their plans for the economy will work.

Backbench Conservative MPs have shared concerns following the thumbs-down from financial markets in the wake of last Friday’s tax cuts for higher earners.
