A new YouGov poll has found that 49% of Londoners think proposed changes to tax credits are a bad idea. According to the survey, only 32% believe George Osborne’s plans are a good idea.

The results also show that 35% of those surveyed believe the changes have had a negative impact on how they view the government.

The YouGov survey of 208 Londoners was conducted on the 22nd and 23rd of October.

The poll comes as the government faces growing pressure to drop its plans to cut tax credits. On Monday, peers are due to vote on the changes in the House of Lords.

More than 116,000 people across the UK have signed a petition asking the Lords to block the cuts.
