Boris Johnson has promised to pass his Brexit deal and bring a Budget within 100 days if he is elected PM. The Tory leader says it would include his pledge to raise the National Insurance threshold to £9,500, along with cash for schools and the NHS. Chancellor Sajid Javid said he did not have a "single doubt" a Conservative government could then agree a trade deal with the EU by the end of 2020.

But Labour said Tories only offered "more of the same ailure". The Lib Dems called the Conservative plans "pure fantasy", while the SNP warned there were seven days left to "lock" Mr Johnson out of Downing Street. Voters will go to the polls on 12 December for the third election in just over four years.

Mr Johnson said he would set out his wider legislative agenda in a Queen's Speech pencilled in for 19 December if he gets back into No 10. He promised this would build on the programme that was approved by Parliament as recently as October, but which was then effectively mothballed after MPs voted to back an early election.
