A new survey carried out for BBC News Online suggests Labour has stolen a march on the Conservatives in key policy areas.

The party leads on five topics - health, education, crime, transport and the economy - while the Conservatives are ahead only on Europe.

And party leader William Hague is seen as a less popular choice for prime minister than his Labour rival Tony Blair.

A detailed breakdown of the survey results can be seen below.

ICM interviewed a random sample of 1004 adults via the internet between 6 and 9 February 2001. Interviews were conducted across the country and the results have been weighted to the profile of all adults.
