Almost eight in 10 people in Britain support a national minimum wage, a Unison/MORI poll has found.

A total of 88% of Labour voters and 62% of Conservative voters support its introduction.

A majority, 56%, would set the minimum wage at around £4.00 an hour.

Twenty-five percent, particularly those in low-income households and black and Asian respondents, believe it should be around £5.50 an hour, and 6% say the level should be £2.50.

Support for a minimum wage is strongest in Scotland and lowest in London.
