Labour will face questions on how they plan to outspend the Tories on the NHS, while Lib Dem leader Jo Swinson will respond to the party's candidate controversy in Canterbury.

The view from the campaigns
Paul Brand says Boris Johnson will include an environmental element to his Brexit-dominated first keynote campaign speech.
Libby Wiener sizes up the battle Labour have in Scotland and the party's main health service pledge of the day.
Rachel Younger gets ready for a knockout Wednesday with Jo Swinson but notes the latest blow to the Lib Dem campaign presents an existential crisis for the party at this election.
Angus Walker identifies the potential legal repercussions from Nigel Farage's decision to not contest seats won by the Conservatives in 2017.
Calling Peston: The ITV News Election Podcast
The impact of the appalling flooding in South Yorkshire on the campaign is the main topic of the latest episode.
Robert Peston outlines how it will test the Conservatives and opposition parties and whether the fallout over the response feeds their narratives or not.
And in a first for Calling Peston, Daniel and Shehab have a very special guest drop in to their Westminster recording booth: ITV News Security Bureau Producer Dan Howells, fielding questions on the cyber attack on Labour and Shehab's Nando's hack.
Then Peston himself pops in to answer listeners' astute questions, including whether Jo Swinson can really hold by her pledge to not form a coalition with Jeremy Corbyn.
ITV News Political Reporters Daniel Hewitt and Shehab Khan will be digesting the campaign every weekday - and dial in Robert to get his take on it all.
The Calling Peston podcast will take you behind the scenes of life reporting on the election campaign trail, hearing from our reporters on the road across the country.
Like what you hear? New episodes will appear every weekday afternoon at 5pm.
Today's question: Could a post-Brexit trade deal with the US cost the NHS £500m?
If the last election was punctuated by the chant of "Oh Jer-e-my Cor- byn" at Labour rallies, this time its the roar of "Not For Sale, Not For Sale" about the NHS that’s getting Labour supporters fired up, writes ITV News Political Correspondent Romilly Weeks.
This has had the government scrambling to utter furious denials.
With the help of the independent fact checking organisation Full Fact we thought we’d look into this claim.
Battlegrounds: The key fights in Scotland as voters face poll fatigue
We’ve been in Scotland for a few days and already I feel their pain: five polls in six years, writes ITV News National Editor Allegra Stratton.
Each of these decisions, massive weighty decisions: the 2014 independence referendum; the 2015 general election; the 2016 Brexit referendum; the next general election in 2017; a brief respite in 2018; which brings us to now and our winter poll.
When you think that each of these votes will have divided families and friends, you understand why people we have spoken to are a bit fed up.
The received wisdom is that Scotland, like the Lib Dem attack, eats into Boris Johnson’s baseline in this election – that he will lose seats to an SNP advance just as he will lose seats to Lib Dems in Remain areas which are currently Tory.
However, after a few days on the north-west coast I don’t think it will.
