Support for Labour has slipped 2 per cent in Scotland although the party continues to dominate the political landscape north of the border, an opinion poll indicated last night.

The party has dropped to 52 per cent from 54 per cent last month, according to the System Three poll published in the Herald newspaper. The Scottish Nationalists have put on 4 per cent to 26 per cent, while the Conservatives remain unchanged at 12 per cent.

The Liberal Democrats dropped 3 per cent to 8 per cent although this could pick up later this month with the publicity spin-off from their party's national conference which is being held in Glasgow. The Green Party has scored 1 per cent.
