Suggestions of a modest recovery for support of the government and Boris Johnson's approval ratings has been counteracted by new polling figures showing another drop in the polls.
A new Survation poll found a 15 point reduction in the government's approval rating compared to polling conducted at the end of June.
And Boris Johnson's ratings also saw a ten point reduction during the same time period.
Favourability in the government is now standing at 37% compared to 43% in June, when new measures to ease lockdown had been announced, with 46% giving an unfavourable view compared to 37% previously.
Net favourability of the government is now standing at -9 points compared to +6 last month.

Survation said the bounce after the announcement has not been sustained and the '15 point drop today is the most significant fall in government approval since the Dominic Cummings affair.'
But despite this, there has been little change in voter intention, with the Tories still retaining a 7 point lead over Labour.
