LONDON (Reuters) - British Prime Minister Boris Johnson’s Conservative Party has extended its lead slightly over the opposition Labour Party to nine points, up from eight a week ago, according to a poll by Panelbase.

The Conservatives were on 43%, up one point from the polling firm’ survey last week, with Labour unchanged on 34%, Panelbase said on Friday.

The Liberal Democrats were also unchanged on 13% and the Brexit Party was down one point on 3%, although it had 7% support in the seats where it is fielding a candidate.

Panelbase interviewed 2,033 people between Dec. 4 and 6.

Britons go to the polls on Dec. 12.
