General Election 2017 briefing: Everything you need to know about Monday’s campaigning

15 May

Today Mrs May will unveil 11 pledges for the Conservative manifesto to enhance workers’ rights as she seeks to gain the support of disenchanted working-class voters who feel alienated by the Labour leader.

She will promise to introduce new rights for self-employed and temporary employees in the “gig economy”, and these could include paid maternity and paternity leave.

Mrs May will also take part in her first ever Facebook Live Q&A session as part of ITV News Leaders Live.

She will spend 45 minutes answering a broad range of questions streaming in live from the online audience, with questions curated by ITV News Political Editor Robert Peston.
