It’s Rishi Sunak’s turn for a grilling by LBC’s Nick Ferrari this morning on the second of the station’s special election phone-ins.

The Prime Minister will then head to East Anglia, where he will take questions from journalists as the Tories step up their tax attacks on Labour.

Akshata Murty, Mr Sunak’s wife, is also out campaigning with Lucia Hunt and Susie Cleverly, the wives of Jeremy Hunt, the Chancellor, and James Cleverly, the Home Secretary.

Sir Keir Starmer, the Labour leader, and Rachel Reeves, the shadow chancellor, are off to a supermarket in the South West, where Ms Reeves will reiterate the party’s pledge to make Britain a clean energy superpower by 2030.

Daisy Cooper, the Liberal Democrat deputy leader, is out in one of the party’s key target seats.

And it’s a big day for the SNP, which is launching its manifesto in Edinburgh.

Anas Sarwar, the Scottish Labour leader, and Jonathan Reynolds, the shadow business minister, are also out campaigning north of the border.
