    MOSCOW (Sputnik) — The gap between UK Labour Party and the Conservative Party narrowed to 1 percent with 4 days to go until snap general election on June 8, a fresh Survation poll showed Sunday.

    The survey by Survation for the Mail on Sunday newspaper showed that the voting intention figures for the Labour Party rose by 5 percent over the week, amounting now to 39 percent, while chances of the Tories drop by 6 points down to 40 percent.
