LONDON — The pound is falling against the euro and dollar on Wednesday after a new poll suggested that next week’s election could return a hung parliament.
The Times reports that a constituency-by-constituency poll by YouGov suggests that the Conservatives could lose 20 seats in the general election, while Labour could gain 30.
The Tory party would fall 16 seats short of the 326 needed to control the House of Commons, leaving no one party with overall control of parliament.
