Labour and the Tories remain effectively deadlocked in polls despite furious clashes over tax dodging and business support.

Research by ComRes for the Independent on Sunday and Sunday Mirror puts Ed Miliband’s party on 34% – just two points ahead of the Conservatives.

An Opinium survey for the Observer found the parties were on 35% and 33% respectively.

The gap is within the margin of error, indicating they were effectively neck and neck.

ComRes had Ukip down two points over the past month to 16%, with the Liberal Democrats unchanged on 7% and the Greens up one on 4%.

According to Opinium, Nigel Farage’s party had slipped by a single point to 14%, while the Lib Dems were up one on 8% and the Greens down two on 6%.

:: ComRes interviewed 2,017 British adults online on February 11 and 12. Data was weighted to represent all adults, and by past voter recall.

Opinium interviewed 1,686 adults online between February 10 and 12, and adjusted the data to represent all adults.
