The party will instead turn their focus to concentrating on the people's vote.

Meanwhile, Jeremy Corbyn will try to steer his party’s campaign back towards the NHS after a facing a difficult day on the issue of anti-semitism in the Labour party.

The Conservatives will also want to move the focus onto their agenda again after the party was accused by the Muslim Council of Britain of “denial, dismissal and deceit” with regards to Islamophobia within its ranks.

Politicians have been urged by church leaders to engage in a “truthful” debate during the 2019 election.

It comes after the Catholic Bishops’ Conference of Scotland issued a pastoral letter to be read out at services, calling on members of the congregation to elect MPs who “reflect as close as possible their beliefs”.
