And with the polls narrowing every day, neither Theresa May nor Jeremy Corbyn will want to waste a day when they could be on the doorstep or on the TV.

Last night, Labour leader Jeremy Corbyn said it was important that the parties return to campaigning and the election goes ahead as planned.
“The general election is of course about the democratic choice between the Labour and Conservative parties and our very different visions and plans for the future of our country.
“But it is also now about something even bigger it is about the struggle between terrorism and democracy itself.
“The mass murderers who brought terror to our streets in London and Manchester want our election to be halted, they want democracy halted. They want their violence to overwhelm our right to vote in a fair and peaceful election and to go about our lives freely.
“That is why there can be no doubt that next Thursday’s vote must go ahead. Neither can we suspend our campaigning, so I am glad to be here in Carlisle as scheduled and launching our housing policy with John Healey.”
The Lib Dems are campaigning in Scotland today, as Leader Tim Farron has had another pop at Theresa May’s relationship with Donald Trump following the London Bridge attack.
“Donald Trump has shown how little he cares for the special relationship and how much he will twist the truth to try and justify his divisive policies.
“Sadiq Khan has shown calm and dignified resolve in the face of these cowardly terrorist attacks. He is more of a statesman than Donald Trump will ever be.
“It is preposterous for the Trump administration to suggest he may come over here just days before a General Election.
“Any diversion of vital resources to protect Trump would be an unnecessary distraction as the country prepares to go to the polls on Thursday.”
And the Green Party are pledging to introduce free prescriptions for all, arguing the government is “fining people for being sick.”
Caroline Lucas will say:
“Every day this Government is fining people for falling sick by charging for prescriptions. GPs have warned that prescription charges force some patients to choose between spending their earnings on food – or essential medical treatment. This is not acceptable. It’s also a false economy because not taking prescribed mediation can cause people to miss work and lead to additional GP or hospital appointments.”
