LONDON - British Prime Minister Theresa May's Conservatives have seen their large lead over the Labour opposition narrow slightly after details of Labour's policy program were published last week, an opinion poll from Panelbase showed on Tuesday.

Ahead of a June 8 national election, market research firm Panelbase said support for the Conservatives fell by 1 percentage point to 47 percent compared with a poll it conducted last week, while backing for Labour rose 2 points to 33 percent.

Support for the Liberal Democrats edged down by 1 percentage point to 7 percent, and the UK Independence Party's support remained unchanged at 5 percent.

Panelbase conducted its poll online between May 12 and 15, and the results were based on a sample of 1,026 adults.
