Both Labour and Johnson's Conservatives are pledging to pour funds into Britain's state-funded National Health Service after years of only modest increases under Conservative governments.

Mr Coveney, who is also the minister for foreign affairs in the Dail, said there would be east-west checks on goods coming into Northern Ireland.

McDonnell replied that Labour was not against entrepreneurs and that all the party wanted to do was create a fair society and end "grotesque" inequality.

Under new 39-year-old leader Jo Swinson, the Liberal Democrats hope to capture the votes of "Remainers" with a clear message to cancel Brexit, pitching themselves as the pro-European Union party, as opposed to the pro-Brexit Conservatives and undecided Labour.

Polls released on Saturday showed the Conservatives with an average lead of 10 percent.

48% of voters believed Brexit has received the most media coverage this campaign, with 23% saying they had heard most about the NHS and 8% saying racism and anti-semitism in political parties had been the most prominent.

As the prime minister faced fresh questions over trade within the United Kingdom after Brexit, Arlene Foster said government officials had told her there would need to be checks.
