All quotes by Theresa May on British elections 2017

I recognise, as I said when I stood on the steps of Downing Street a year ago, there are some people in our country who are just about managing – they find life a struggle.feedback

But you only get that with a strong economy and you only get that with a Conservative government.feedback

What I say to Sarah, and to those working in the National Health Service, is that we recognise the excellent work that they're doing. We recognise the sacrifice that they and others have made over the last seven years.feedback

Brexit is now becoming just another job for the boys.feedback

We are not leaving only to return to the jurisdiction of the European Court of Justice. That is not going to happen.feedback

Since the government announcement last week, we have come into contact with some people in this situation and, if there are more of them, we want them to have the confidence to come forward and speak to us. The main concerns relate to undocumented people not coming forward because of fears about their immigration status after 12 months. Firstly, that will have an impact on the world of the inquiry because you are potentially losing the number of eyewitnesses that could be there. Second, it's about making sure that people are able to access the provisions that the government has put in place.feedback

Yes, a little tear ... at that moment. I felt, I suppose, devastated really because, as I say, I knew the campaign wasn't going perfectly but, still, the messages I was getting, people I was speaking to, but also the comments we were getting back from a lot of people that were being passed on to me were that we were going to get a better result than we did.feedback

You have a responsibility. You are a human being, you have been through that experience, I was there as leader of the party and Prime Minister and I had a responsibility then to, as we went through the night, to determine what we were going to do the next morning.feedback

I still see there is a lot that we need to do we and as prime minister I want to get on with that job of changing people's lives for the better.feedback

What I want to do is just recognise that there is a job to be done here, over the next few years. I want to get on with doing that job. My view is I have always said that I would be here for the full term, but what I have also said is that over the years I have given my life to this Conservative Party and I will serve as long as they want me to serve. There were good reasons why I called it, and I continue to think that it was the right thing to do. I set out a year ago, when I stood on the steps here, the sort of vision I had. The sort of country I wanted us to be.feedback

At this summit, I held a number of meetings with other world leaders, all of whom made clear their strong desire to forge ambitious new bilateral trading relationships with the UK after Brexit. This included America, Japan, China and India. I am very happy to tell him (Corbyn) that we are already working with the Americans on what a trade deal might look like. We already have a working group with the Australians, and we have a working group with India as well.feedback

The coveted Protected Geographical Indication status is a fantastic recognition of the hard work you and your family have put into the business, and it is great news for London and the UK food industry as a whole. It is a particular achievement to be the first London-based food to be recognised in this way.feedback

When the result came through, it was a complete shock. It took a few minutes for it to sort of sink in, what that was telling me. My husband gave me a hug. Yes, a little tear … at that moment. There is a job to be done over the next few years. I want to get on with that job.feedback

When the result came through it was complete shock. It took a few minutes for it to sink in what it was telling me,'. When it came to the actual result there were a lot of people within the party who had been very close to the campaign who were genuinely shocked by the result as it came through.feedback

As the campaign was going on I realised that everything wasn't going perfectly, but throughout the whole campaign the expectation still was that the result was going to be a different one, a better one for us, than it was. We didn't see the result that came coming. She "felt there was a responsibility there, to ensure that the country still had a government.feedback

Going through that night I was seeing really good colleagues who I'd worked with, who were losing their seats. Again, I used the word devastating, because it is pretty devastating – it's very distressing when you see people that you know have done a good job lose their seats. I called the election, I led the campaign and I take responsibility for what happened. But there's also a responsibility for the future, for the country, and that was about ensuring the country had a government.feedback

One of the important things with that deal, was that we were very clear that the Conservative party was not going to row back at all in anything we've done on the equalities agenda.feedback

What I want to do is just recognise that there is a job to be done here, over the next few years. . There were good reasons why I called it, and I continue to think that it was the right thing to do. I set out a year ago, when I stood on the steps here, the sort of vision I had. The sort of country I wanted us to be. I don't think that vision came through sufficiently during the campaign. We did not do enough not just on the positives of the economic record we had, but also the negatives of what Jeremy Corbyn's manifesto would mean for people.feedback

I have got a job to do. My view is I have always said that I would be here for the full term, but what I have also said is that over the years I have given my life to this Conservative Party and I will serve as long as they want me to serve. I want to get on with doing that job. We should not be ashamed of saying that there were good things in that campaign. We got 42.4% of the vote. Conservative Party leaders of the past two or three decades would have leapt at 42.4%.feedback

I have been horrified by stories from colleagues about the scale and nature of the intimidation, bullying and harassment they suffered during the general election campaign. Robust debate is a vital part of our democracy, but there can be no place for the shocking threats and abuse we have seen in recent months.feedback

I don't think that vision came through sufficiently during the campaign. Me' was that speech on the steps of Number 10 a year ago. That is what we were working on right up to the election, and it is what we are now working on. But that did not come across during the election campaign. I can see why some might say that, as it did not go quite according to plan. Obviously for us, we have to think about the message we have for those young people.feedback

We must all work together to banish this behaviour, and I would urge MPs and candidates from all parties to report their experiences to this review so we get the fullest possible picture – and can take the action required to stamp it out.feedback

We will build on the strengths of our labour market. While avoiding overbearing regulation, we will make sure people have the rights and protections they need. That means building on our high employment rate and low unemployment rate – and continuing to strive for full employment.feedback

I was shocked to hear of these remarks, which are completely unacceptable. I immediately asked the chief whip to suspend the party whip. Language like this has absolutely no place in politics or in today's society. And then we get to the real n***** in the woodpile which is in two years what happens if there is no deal?feedback

Though the result of last month's General Election was not what I wanted, those defining beliefs remain, my commitment to change in Britain is undimmed. My belief in the potential of the British people and what we can achieve together as a nation remains steadfast, and the determination I have to get to grips with the challenges posed by a changing world never more sure. So I say to the other parties in the House of Commons ... come forward with your own views and ideas about how we can tackle these challenges as a country.feedback

We may not agree on everything, but through debate and discussion, the hallmarks of our Parliamentary democracy, ideas can be clarified and improved and a better way forward found. Though the result of last month's general election was not what I wanted, those defining beliefs remain, my commitment to change in Britain is undimmed. My belief in the potential of the British people and what we can achieve together as a nation remains steadfast, and the determination I have to get to grips with the challenges posed by a changing world never more sure.feedback

Though the result of last month's general election was not what I wanted, those defining beliefs remain, my commitment to change in Britain is undimmed; my belief in the potential of the British people and what we can achieve together as a nation remains steadfast; and the determination I have to get to grips with the challenges posed by a changing world never more sure. I am convinced that the path that I set out in that first speech outside Number 10 and upon which we have set ourselves as a government remains the right one. The reality I now face as Prime Minister is rather different.feedback

It will lead to the stronger, fairer Britain that we need. When I commissioned this report I led a majority government in the House of Commons. The reality I now face as prime minister is rather different. In this new context, it will be even more important to make the case for our policies and our values, and to win the battle of ideas both in Parliament as well as in the country.feedback

We are optimistic and positive about this. I've held a number of meetings with other world leaders at this summit and have been struck by their strong desire to forge ambitious new bilateral trading relationships with the UK after Brexit. This is a powerful vote of confidence in British goods, British services, Britain's economy and the British people and we look forward to building on these conversations in the months ahead.feedback

Like other world leaders here, I am dismayed at the US decision to pull out of the Paris agreement and I have urged President Trump to rejoin the Paris agreement. The UK's own commitment to the Paris agreement and tackling global climate change is as strong as ever. I did bring the issue of the climate change agreement up with President Trump, I've had a number of conversations with him over the time I have been here at the G20. When I brought it up with him, what I did was I encouraged him to bring the United States back into the Paris agreement.feedback

Well, I'm still Prime Minister. The 19 countries sitting around the table will be listening and will be taking us seriously and will be working with us.feedback

That is precisely why that call was made from the beginning to state that residents should be rehoused locally, because it's been known for some time that they've been bussing people out of this area. That's been an issue for many, many years around here, and that's one of the reasons that comments were made earlier in terms of the social cleansing of this area.feedback

I said during the election campaign that if re-elected I would intend to serve a full term.feedback

Well, I'm still Prime Minister. I'm doing absolutely what I always do which is getting on with the job, which is delivering a stable government for the United Kingdom, ensuring that we focus on the key issue of getting those Brexit negotiations right.feedback

I understand there are a number of issues that have been raised around the statue. What I'm very clear about is there should be no suggestion that the threat of vandalism should stop a statue of Margaret Thatcher from being put up.feedback

I understand that the chances of improvement for Charlie are low but the doctors will be able to say within three months whether Charlie is responding and whether that change is clinically beneficial. I fully understand and appreciate that any parent would want to do everything possible for their seriously ill child. I also know that no doctor ever wants to be in the position where they have to make such heartbreaking decisions. I'm confident that Great Ormond Street Hospital has considered, and always will consider, any offers or new information that comes forward.feedback

On climate change I've already made clear our position to President Trump, there will be a discussion about the US position, I and others at that table will be encouraging President Trump to look at ways America can come back into the Paris Agreement.feedback

There's two ways the government can react to that. We can be very timid and sit back or we can be bold and that's what we are going to be. I think it was the right decision to actually call that election. I'd hoped for a different result. As you know, I think mental health is an issue that has been left to one side for too long and we need to firmly address that in everybody's interests.feedback

I think what's important is that we get on with the job and getting on with the job is about delivering for people.feedback

Yes. We will be playing our absolutely full part and I'll be playing my full part and the issues that we are discussing are important. But what I'm doing now is actually getting on with the immediate job.feedback

I hope they will be able to find a way to come back in to the Paris agreement ... I believe it is possible. We are not renegotiating the Paris agreement, that stays, but I want to see the U.S. looking for ways to rejoin it. The collective message that will be given to President Trump around this table will be the importance of America coming back in to that agreement and I hope we will be able to work to ensure that can happen.feedback

We know that the terrorist threat is evolving. We have seen the threat spread out of Syria and Iraq – into other countries and online. As we deny physical space to terrorists to operate in theatre, we must outpace the terrorist methodology as it develops to attack other vulnerable targets and increases inspired attacks. We must therefore combat the threat from every angle. This includes taking measures against permissive environments for terrorist financing, and monitoring the dispersal of foreign fighters from battle.feedback

What I think needs to happen is first of all, we absolutely condemn the action that North Korea has taken. What we need to see is a China who can exercise influence on North Korea [and] playing a greater role in doing that. If there are proposals to tighten sanctions and extend sanctions, we will do that.feedback

Our policy on public sector pay has always recognised that we need to be fair to public sector workers, to protect jobs in the public sector and to be fair to those who pay for it. That is the balance that we need to strike and we continue to assess that balance.feedback

This is not a theoretical issue. Let us look at those countries that failed to deal with it. In Greece, where they have not dealt with the deficit ... What did we see with that failure to deal with the deficit? Spending on the health service cut by 36%. That does not help nurses or patients. The difference is, I know we have to pay for them.feedback

It isn't fair to refuse to take tough decision and to load debt on our children and grandchildren. It isn't fair to bankrupt our economy, because that leads to people losing their jobs, and losing their homes. And it isn't fair to go out and tell people that they can have all the public spending they want without paying for it.feedback

You're either for fox hunting or you're against it and some people feel passionately on both sides of this. I was brought up in the countryside and yes, I do support fox hunting.feedback

In the Conservative manifesto there would be a free vote in parliament and it would not be whipped by party.feedback

I said during the election campaign that if re-elected I would intend to serve a full term. But what I'm doing now is actually getting on with the immediate job. But I think that's what's more important, I think that's what the public would expect.feedback

In the UK we are already working with social media companies to halt the spread of extremist material and poisonous propaganda that is warping young minds. I can announce that the UK and France will work together to encourage corporations to do more and abide by their social responsibility to step up their efforts to remove harmful content from their networks, including exploring the possibility of creating a new legal liability for tech companies if they fail to remove unacceptable content.feedback

Our economy should work for everyone, but if your pay has stagnated for several years in a row and fixed items of spending keep going up, it doesn't feel like it's working for you.feedback

I got us into this mess and I'll get us out of it.feedback

This is not a presidential system – we don't operate one. We should not start pretending that we do – when prime ministers set a date for departure way in advance is to undermine the office.feedback

She does not need to do that. It is painfully obvious where we are going. My worry is if she sets out a timescale she confirms herself as a lame duck. It is very important in terms of the Brexit negotiation – she would be doing a Cameron [who told the BBC he would not stand for a third term in March 2015].feedback

If I am elected I will certainly serve my full term … the two years of Brexit negotiations are due to finish in 2019. I have always said there may be an implementation period. I want to make sure Brexit happens and it is a good deal for the UK.feedback

My strong view is that she should not be wasting her time setting out her timetable for departure – she should just be getting on with her job.feedback

Before the inquiry starts Sir Martin will consult all those with an interest, including survivors and victims' families, about the terms of reference. Following that consultation he will make a recommendation to me. I will return to parliament with the final terms of reference once this process has taken place. Then the inquiry will begin its work.feedback

I am determined that there will be justice for all the victims of this terrible tragedy and for their families who have suffered so terribly. We must get to the truth about what happened. No stone will be left unturned by this inquiry.feedback

We must get to the truth about what happened. No stone will be left unturned by this Inquiry, but I have also been clear that we cannot wait for ages to learn the immediate lessons and so I expect the Chair will want to produce an interim report as early as possible. The immediate priority is to establish the facts of what happened at Grenfell Tower in order to take the necessary action to prevent a similar tragedy from happening again.feedback

I expect [students] will turn up in their Corbyn T-shirts and he will relish in it.feedback

For very practical reasons, when we know what the future relationship with the EU will be, we may need implementation periods. We made that point in our Article 50 letter to ensure that the practical arrangements can be put in place for that new relationship. But I'm very clear, this does not mean that unlimited transitional phase. We are going to leave the European Union, that's what people wanted, that's what we will deliver.feedback

The cladding of tower blocks did not start under this government, it did not start under the previous coalition government. The cladding of towerblocks began under the Blair government.feedback

That is why I say to the right honourable gentleman, this should be an issue that across this house we recognise is a matter that has been developing over decades. It is a matter that has occurred under governments of both colours, under councils of all political persuasions and is something that I would hope we would say we should come together and ensure that we get to the answers over why this has happened over many years, what has gone wrong, and how do we stop it from happening in the future.feedback

As we have seen, the number of buildings where the cladding has failed the combustibility test, form those samples that have been sent in already from local authorities and housing associations, this is a much wider issue. It is an issue which has been continuing for many years, for decades, in terms of cladding being put up in buildings. There are real questions as to how this has happened, why it happened and how we can ensure that it doesn't happen in the future.feedback

We need to get to the bottom of it, and that's what we're going to do.feedback

The cladding of tower blocks began under the Blair government. There are real issues here - we are not going to get to the truth by pointing fingers, we will by calm determination. My understanding is that this particular cladding was not compliant with the building regulations.feedback

What I think Nicola Sturgeon should be saying today is that she's going to completely take off the table the question of Indy Ref 2, a second independence referendum in Scotland. I think that was the clear message from the general election and I think now is the time for the United Kingdom to be pulling together, not being driven apart.feedback

What I think Nicola Sturgeon should be saying today is that she is going to completely take off the table the question of… a second independence referendum in Scotland. I think that was the clear message at the general election and I think now is the time for the United Kingdom to be pulling together not being driven apart.feedback

People who say that we should be not dealing on this as a reciprocal basis simply don't understand what negotiations are about, because the other side will be negotiating on these issues.feedback

He talks about the issue of no deal being better than a bad deal. I'll tell him what I worry about in terms of a bad deal: I worry about those who appear to suggest in Europe that we should be punished in some sense for leaving the European Union.feedback

We want you to stay. We want certainty. I know there's been some anxiety about what would happen to EU citizens at the point we leave the European Union. I want to put that anxiety to rest, I want to completely reassure these people that under these plans no EU citizen currently in the UK lawfully will be asked to leave at the point the UK leaves the EU. We want you to stay.feedback

As we set out at the beginning of talks, we share many values in terms of wanting to see prosperity across the UK, the value of the union, the important bond between different parts of the United Kingdom. We very much want to see that protected and enhanced and we also share the desire to ensure a strong government, able to put through its program and provide for issues like the Brexit negotiations, but also national security issues. So the agreement we have come to is a very, very good one, and I look forward to working with you.feedback

Absolutely our first priority is people's safety.feedback

It is wonderful that we mark the tremendous job that our armed forces do for us here at home and across the world, helping to keep us safe. Of course recently, after the terrible terrorist attack in Manchester, we saw our armed forces on the streets helping to reassure people of their safety and security, and it's great that we recognise the work that all our armed forces do, as I say, both here and across the world.feedback

For those Camden blocks, it wasn't just a question of the cladding; there were a number of issues that came together that meant that the fire service were concerned about those blocks and the action was taken by the local authority. We are making sure that the authority has the ability to do what is necessary to ensure people have somewhere to stay and that the work is done so that those tower blocks will become safe for them to return to in the future.feedback

We're looking carefully at the extent of the problem, and the experience of other countries that have introduced bans, to ensure we get the approach to this right.feedback

The commitment that we make to EU citizens will be enshrined in UK law and will be enforced through our highly respected courts.feedback

They are testing the cladding on the building and they expect to make the results of this public, I think in the next 48 hours. What we need to ensure is that when the fire services, when the police have done their investigation, that any action that is necessary immediately as a result of the identification of the cause of the fire and the reasons why the fire took such hold - which is the issue that is of particular concern - then any action that is necessary is taken and it will be taken.feedback

We cannot and will not ask people to live in unsafe homes.' She added: 'I know many others living in tall residential buildings will have concerns about their safety after what happened at Grenfell.feedback

Landlords have a legal obligation to provide safe buildings. Where they cannot do that, we expect alternative accommodation to be provided. We cannot and will not ask people to live in unsafe homes.feedback

Reciprocity was, of course, vital. Both sides should seek to agree on terms and give certainty as early as possible in the talks.feedback

We will be going into negotiations. Those have started constructively. What I am going to be setting out today is clearly how the United Kingdom proposes to protect the rights of EU citizens living in the UK and see the rights of UK citizens living in Europe protected.feedback

I think what voters voted for when they voted to leave the EU was to ensure that, outside the European Union, the United Kingdom could establish our own rules on migration, from the EU into the UK, and that is exactly what we will be doing.feedback

I want to reassure EU citizens. Of course, there will be details of this arrangement which will be part of the negotiation process. I want to reassure all those EU citizens who are in the UK, who have made their lives and homes in the UK, that no-one will have to leave, we won't be seeing families split apart. This is a fair and serious offer. I want to give those EU citizens in the UK certainty about the future of their lives, but I also want to see that certainty given to U citizens who are living in the EU.feedback

I want to reassure all those EU citizens who are in the UK, who've made their lives and homes in the UK that no one will have to leave, we won't be seeing families split apart. This is a fair and serious offer. And I want to give those EU citizens in the UK certainty about the future of their lives but I also want to see that certainty given to UK citizens who are living in the European Union.feedback

Last night I was pleased to be able to set out what is a very fair and a very serious offer for EU citizens who are living in the United Kingdom and the government will set out more detailed proposals on Monday. I want to reassure all those EU citizens who are in the UK, who have made their lives and homes in the UK, that no one will have to leave. We won't be seeing families split apart.feedback

No one will face a cliff edge. The UK's position represents a fair and serious offer, one aimed at giving as much certainty as possible to citizens who have settled in the UK, building careers and lives and contributing so much to our society.feedback

The corporation tax yield has gone shooting up since the government reduced the rates of corporation tax providing more money for the National Health Service, Schools, Social Care and the other Public Services - so please show a bit of financial literacy.feedback

I am going to be setting out today is clearly how the UK proposes to protect the rights of EU citizens living in the UK and see the rights of the British citizens living in Europe protected, that's been an important issue.feedback

These grants are not loans and they will not be expected to repay a single penny. We will not use this tragic incident to carry out immigration checks on those involved. For any guilty parties there will be nowhere to hide.feedback

We propose to protect the rights of EU citizens and UK citizens as we leave the European Union. That's been an important issue, we've wanted it to be one of the early issues that was considered in the negotiations, that is now the case, that work is starting.feedback

Mr Speaker what became clear very quickly is the the Royal Borough of Kensington and Chelsea could not cope and it is right that the Chief Executive Officer has now resigned.feedback

I know many others living in tall residential buildings will have concerns about their safety after what happened at Grenfell. All social landlords have been instructed to carry out additional fire safety checks on tower blocks and ensure the appropriate safety and response measures are in place. We've also taken steps to make private landlords aware and make our checking facilities available to them for free. The House should, of course, be careful on speculating what caused this fire. But, as a precaution, the Government has arranged to test cladding in all relevant tower blocks.feedback

Shortly before I came to the chamber, I was informed that a number of these tests have come back as combustible. The relevant local authorities and local fire services have been informed and, as I speak, they are taking all possible steps to ensure buildings are safe and to inform affected residents. I know many others living in tall residential buildings will have concerns about their safety after what happened at Grenfell. All social landlords have been instructed to carry out additional fire safety checks on tower blocks and ensure the appropriate safety and response measures are in place.feedback

In terms of the people who are living in those buildings, we will do a further test to make sure the buildings are safe–obviously nobody will be living in buildings that are unsafe.feedback

That is a matter that will be considered by the appropriate group on Kensington and Chelsea council. No stone will be left unturned in this inquiry, and for any guilty parties there will be nowhere to hide. I would like to reassure people that we will not use this tragic incident as reason to carry out immigration checks on those involved, or on those providing vital information to help identify victims.feedback

Let me be absolutely clear, the support on the ground for families in the initial hours was not good enough. People were left without belongings, without roofs over their heads, without basic information about what had happened, what they should do and where they could seek help. That was a failure of the state - local and national - to help people when they needed it most. As prime minister, I apologise for that failure - and as prime minister, I've taken responsibility for doing what we can to put things right.feedback

We cannot and will not allow people to live in unsafe homes.feedback

We can test over 100 buildings a day, and the results come within hours. I urge any landlord who owns a building of this kind to send samples for testing as soon as possible. Any results will be communicated immediately to local authorities and local fire services. We cannot and will not ask people to live in unsafe homes.feedback

We will make markets fairer including measures to tackle unfair practices in the energy and telecoms markets.feedback

If that does not work, we will change the law to allow us to use a better definition of development spending, while continuing to meet our 0.7 per cent target.feedback

While this will be a Government that consults and listens, we are clear that we are going to see Brexit through, working with Parliament, business, the devolved administrations and others to ensure a smooth and orderly withdrawal. 'The Tories' election disaster shows they have no mandate for a hard Brexit and yet it looks like they are going to be the bogged down in their own Brexit mess.feedback

The election result was not the one I hoped for, but this Government will respond with humility and resolve to the message the electorate sent. We will work hard every day to gain the trust and confidence of the British people, making their priorities our priorities. While this will be a Government that consults and listens, we are clear that we are going to see Brexit through, working with Parliament, business, the devolved administrations and others to ensure a smooth and orderly withdrawal.feedback

Much has been said in recent days about what the general election signified about Britain's decision to leave the EU. The fact is that over 80% of the electorate backed the two major parties, both of whom campaigned on manifestos that said we should honour the democratic decision of the British people.feedback

It is a reminder that terrorism, extremism and hatred take many forms; and our determination to tackle them must be the same whoever is responsible. This was an attack that once again targeted the ordinary and the innocent going about their daily lives ? this time British Muslims as they left a Mosque having broken their fast and prayed together at this sacred time of year. Today we come together - as we have done before ? to condemn this act and to state once again that hatred and evil of this kind will never succeed.feedback

Extra police resources have already been deployed to reassure communities, and the police will continue to assess the security needs of mosques and provide any additional resources needed. The terrible terrorist attack which took place last night was an evil born out of hatred and it has devastated a community. I am pleased to have been here today to see the strength of that community coming together, all faiths united in one desire to see extremism and hatred of all sorts driven out of our society.feedback

That is why this government will act to stamp out extremist and hateful ideology – both across society and on the internet, so it is denied a safe space to grow.feedback

This morning we have seen a sickening attempt to destroy those freedoms, and to break those bonds of citizenship that define our United Kingdom. It is a reminder that terrorism, extremism and hatred take many forms, and our determination to tackle them must be the same whoever is responsible.feedback

It is a reminder that terrorism, extremism and hatred take many forms; and our determination to tackle them must be the same whoever is responsible. As I said here two weeks ago, there has been far too much tolerance of extremism in our country over many years – and that means extremism of any kind, including Islamophobia.feedback

There is no place for this hatred in our country today and we need to work together as one society, one community, to drive it out, this evil which is affecting so many families.feedback

Hatred and evil of this kind will never succeed. There has been far too much tolerance of extremism over many years. This was an attack on Muslims near their place of worship and like all terrorism, in whatever form, it shares the same fundamental goal. It seeks to drive us apart and to break the precious bonds of solidarity and citizenship that we share in this country. There has been far too much tolerance of extremism in our country over many years and that means extremism of any kind including Islamophobia.feedback

As we continue to respond to the needs of the community, our focus is on ensuring that all of those affected by this unimaginable tragedy get the right support as quickly as possible. My government will continue to do absolutely everything possible to help all of those affected through the difficult days, weeks, months and years ahead.feedback

It was an attack that targeted the ordinary and the innocent. Today we come together as we have done before to condemn this act and state an act of hatred of this kind will never succeed in dividing us. Like all terrorism, in whatever form, it shares the same goal: to drive us apart. We will not let this happen.feedback

Today's attack falls at a difficult time in the life of this city, following on from the attack on London Bridge two weeks ago – and of course the unimaginable tragedy of Grenfell Tower last week, on which I will chair another meeting of Ministers and officials later today. But what we have seen throughout – whether in the heroism of the ordinary citizens who fought off the attackers at London Bridge; the unbreakable resolve of the residents in Kensington; or this morning the spirit of the community that apprehended this attacker – is that this is an extraordinary city of extraordinary people.feedback

Extra police resources have already been deployed to reassure communities, and the police will continue to assess the security needs of mosques, and provide any additional resources needed, especially during this final week before Eid al-Fitr, a particularly important time for the whole Muslim community.feedback

This is a terrible incident. All my thoughts are with those who have been injured, their loved ones, and the emergency services on the scene.feedback

I will chair an emergency meeting later this morning. All my thoughts are with the victims, their families and the emergency services on the scene. All my thoughts are with those who have been injured, their loved ones and the emergency services on the scene.feedback

Boris Johnson regularly sees Michael when he is staying at Chevening. Michael is the MP for Sevenoaks and lives five minutes from Chevening. They had a catch up over a pint as they have done on many occasions.feedback

The response of the emergency services, NHS and the community has been heroic. But, frankly, the support on the ground for families who needed help or basic information in the initial hours after this appalling disaster was not good enough. The residents of Grenfell Tower, families who have lost loved ones, and the emergency services who have been working so hard to help them have been through some of the most harrowing and traumatic experiences imaginable.feedback

What I'm now absolutely focussed on is ensuring that we get that support on the ground. Government is making money available, we're ensuring that we're going to get to the bottom of what's happened, we will ensure that people are rehoused. But we need to make sure that that actually happens.feedback

That's why I came straight back to Downing Street and I ordered a public inquiry. And we'll make sure that takes place as soon as possible to get to the bottom of this. People have lost their lives and others have lost everything. The government is making money available, we are ensuring we are going to get to the bottom of what has happened, we will ensure that people are re-housed. We need to make sure that actually happens.feedback

In practice there may be difficulties if you have an inquiry that is looking into exactly the same thing a criminal investigation is looking into because the inquiry is not going to want to do anything that is going to prejudice that criminal investigation.feedback

It's absolutely horrifying and I've been hearing stories today from people about their experiences. I've also been hearing from the local community about the issues and concerns that they have. Now the government is making five million pounds available as emergency funds for people who need just to get money to be able to buy the normal things of everyday life.feedback

The package of support I'm announcing today is to give the victims the immediate support they need to care for themselves and for loved ones. We will continue to look at what more needs to be done. Everyone affected by this tragedy needs reassurance that the Government is there for them at this terrible time - and that is what I am determined to provide.feedback

We cannot allow this ideology the safe space it needs to breed. Yet that is precisely what the internet – and the big companies that provide internet-based services – provide. We need to work with allied, democratic governments to reach international agreements that regulate cyberspace to prevent the spread of extremism and terrorist planning. And we need to do everything we can at home to reduce the risks of extremism online.feedback

The United Kingdom does not seek membership of the single market: we understand and respect your position that the four freedoms of the single market are indivisible and there can be no 'cherry picking.feedback

Well, I visited the scene of this terrible fire this morning. I wanted a briefing from the emergency services. They've been working tirelessly in horrific conditions and I have been overwhelmed by their professionalism and their bravery. At times like this the response of the community has been extraordinary. It has shown the great spirit of the people in response to a tragedy such as this. The Government stands ready to provide every assistance to the emergency services and the local authorities.feedback

I heard stories of firefighters running into the building being protected from the falling debris by police officers using their riot shields. And we thank all our emergency services for the incredible work that they have done.feedback

The government has taken action on the recommendations of the coroner's report. The government is doing everything in its power to ensure that people are safe. We have identified those buildings and now and over the weekend people are going in and inspecting those buildings.feedback

The individual stories I heard this morning at Chelsea and Westminster Hospital were horrific. I spoke with people who ran from the fire in only the clothes they were wearing. They have been left with nothing – no bank cards, no money, no means of caring for their children or relatives. One woman told me she had escaped in only her top and underwear.feedback

When it's possible to identify the cause of this fire, then of course there will be proper investigation and if there are any lessons to be learnt they will be, and action will be taken. Tragically now we are not expecting to find anyone else alive. The severity and the heat of the fire would mean it is an absolute miracle for anyone to be left alive. So although we've been up there we haven't managed to do a comprehensive search and until we can make the building safe then I really don't want to risk the safety of my firefighters at this moment in time.feedback

Right now people want answers, and it's absolutely right, and that's why I am today ordering a full public inquiry into this disaster. We need to know what happened; we need to have an explanation of this, we owe that to the families. To the people who have lost loved ones, friends, and the homes in which they lived.feedback

My thoughts are with the victims, their families and all of those who had their homes destroyed. It's impossible to comprehend the horror of what they've been going through. The response of people living nearby who have provided help, compassion and support has I think, once again, shown the fantastic spirit of London. Once again, our emergency services – the fire service, ambulance, NHS and police - have shown incredible bravery, working in truly appalling conditions. Their work will continue for some time, and I know everybody will want to join me in thanking them for their amazing bravery.feedback

We have been very clear we want to maintain a close relationship and a close partnership with the EU and individual member states into the future, including in the areas we've discussed this evening. I think there is a unity of purpose among people in the United Kingdom. It's a unity of purpose, having voted to leave the EU, that their Government gets on with that and makes a success of it, and we are committed to developing a deep and special partnership with the EU.feedback

Every vote for me and my team will strengthen my hand in the Brexit negotiations.feedback

Our discussions today have focused on the greatest security challenge our two countries face: tackling terrorism and rooting out the extremism that fuels it. Both our countries have sadly experienced the horrors of terrorism all too recently.feedback

We are launching a joint UK-French campaign to ensure that the internet cannot be used as a safe space for terrorists and criminals, and that it cannot be used to host the radicalising material that leads to so much harm. Crucially, our campaign will also include exploring creating a legal liability for tech companies if they fail to take the necessary action to remove unacceptable content.feedback

We remain steadfast in our commitment to the Belfast agreement. A discussion taking place on the Northern Ireland executive and our focus is absolute. In talks with DUP we want to ensure with their support we give stability which is important ahead of the Brexit negotiations. Our intent is to have stability in the national interest. We have worked with the DUP before.feedback

Nowhere is our cooperation closer than in the area of defence and security, with British and French fighter pilots flying alongside one another and in each other's planes over Syria and Iraq to strike Daesh [Isil] at its heart, or our troops deployed together in Estonia to provide reassurance to our eastern allies in the face of Russian aggression.feedback

The UK and France will work together to encourage corporations to do more and abide by their social responsibility to step up their efforts to remove harmful content from their networks. We are launching a joint UK-French campaign to ensure that the internet cannot be used as a safe space for terrorists and criminals.feedback

What we're doing in relation to the talks that we're holding, the productive talks we're holding with the Democratic Unionist Party, is ensuring that it is possible to, with their support, give the stability to the UK government that I think is necessary at this time. I confirmed to President Macron that the timetable for the Brexit negotiation remains on course and will begin next week.feedback

In meeting these challenges, what we have seen from the election is that there are parts of our country that remain divided - divided between young and old, rich and poor, those for whom the future offers a sense of opportunity and those for whom it brings worry and concern. Some people blame politics for these divisions or say there is too much politics, but politics can be an incredible force for good - conducted in the right way it can be how we resolve our differences, how we deal with injustices and how we take, not shirk, the big decisions.feedback

Mr Speaker-elect, on behalf of the whole House, may I congratulate you on your re-election - at least someone got a landslide. And may I also congratulate you on becoming the first speaker since the Second World War to be re-elected three times.feedback

As we face difficult challenges ahead, let us come together in a spirit of national unity, to keep our country safe, and build a stronger, fairer and more prosperous future for everyone, in every part of our United Kingdom.feedback

At least somebody got a landslide. While there is further to go, if there is one outcome from this election we can all welcome, it is surely this: that today we have the most diverse and most representative parliament in our history.feedback

The counter-terrorism co-operation between British and French intelligence agencies is already strong, but President Macron and I agree that more should be done to tackle the terrorist threat online. In the UK we are already working with social media companies to halt the spread of extremist material and poisonous propaganda that is warping young minds. We are united in our total condemnation of terrorism and our commitment to stamp out this evil.feedback

I got us into this mess, I'm going to get us out of it. I will serve as long as you want me to.feedback

Crucially I've brought in talent from across the whole of the Conservative Party. This is the government that is going to be governing for everyone. We want a country that works for everyone, bringing that talent together to ensure that we can get on with the job of delivering the successful Brexit.feedback

That's the last thing the country needs. She said she would serve us as long as we want her, and that she's been a party servant since she was 12 years old, stuffing envelopes.feedback

I've got us into the mess and I will get us out of it. She was very concerned about people who have lost their seats, the party is going to help them, some of them are in dire financial situations. She did say sorry, several times. She apologised for colleagues losing their seat, for making the call about the early election.feedback

Today I've been putting together a Cabinet that reflects the wealth of experience talent of across the Conservative Party. A Cabinet that will get on with the job of Government that's about delivering a successful Brexit, and those negotiations start in a week's time. This is a Goverment that is going to be governing for everyone. We want a country that works for everyone, bringing that talent together to ensure we can get on with the job of delivering a successful Brexit. Shell-shocked. There's a job to be done and I think what the people want is the Government to be getting on with that job.feedback

It has to be a totally new start. Some of the stuff that was in the manifesto like the poisonous social welfare stuff has got to be ditched. It's not just rearranging the deckchairs, a new approach will be absolutely essential. She can do it, all she needs to do is want to do it.feedback

I've been putting together a Cabinet that reflects the wealth of talent and experience across the Conservative Party.feedback

We will welcome any such deal being agreed, as it will provide the stability and certainty the whole country requires as we embark on Brexit and beyond. As and when details are finalised, both parties will put them forward.feedback

What I've done today is seen people from across the party accepting the invitation to be in my Cabinet and crucially I have brought in talent from across the whole of the Conservative Party. I said during the election campaign that if re-elected I would intend to serve a full term. But what I'm doing now is actually getting on with the immediate job. But I think that's what's important, I think that's what the public would expect.feedback

Barwell has been a first class minister and is widely respected. He will bring considerable experience of the party to the post. As I said yesterday, I want to reflect on the election and why it did not deliver the result I hoped for.Gavin will have an important role to play in that.feedback

If the UK only improves by this much at each election, we will not see equal representation in parliament until 2062.feedback

Having secured the largest number of votes and the greatest number of seats in the General Election, it is clear that only the Conservative and Unionist Party has the legitimacy and ability to provide that certainty by commanding a majority in the House of Commons. As we do, we will continue to work with our friends and allies in the Democratic Unionist Party in particular. Our two parties have enjoyed a strong relationship over many years, and this gives me the confidence to believe that we will be able to work together in the interests of the whole United Kingdom.feedback

Well, of course, as I've said many times during the campaign, I have wanted to achieve a larger majority, but that was not the result that we secured. And I'm sorry for all those candidates and hard-working party workers who weren't successful, but also particularly sorry for those colleagues who were MPs and ministers who contributed so much to our country and who lost their seats and didn't deserve to lose their seats.feedback

As we do, we will continue to work with our friends and allies in the Democratic Unionist Party in particular. Our two parties have enjoyed a strong relationship over many years, and this gives me the confidence to believe that we will be able to work together in the interests of the whole United Kingdom. This will allow us to come together as a country and channel our energies towards a successful Brexit deal that works for everyone in this country, securing a new partnership with the EU which guarantees our long-term prosperity.feedback

What the country needs more than ever is certainty and having secured the largest number of votes and the greatest number of seats in the general election, it is clear that only the Conservative and Unionist party has the legitimacy and the ability to provide that certainty by commanding a majority in the House of Commons. This will allow us to come together as a country and channel our energies towards a successful Brexit deal that works for everyone in this country.feedback

Our political traditions are different. We have little history of coalition government.feedback

At this time more than anything else this country needs a period of stability, and if this is correct that the Conservatives have won the most votes and probably the most seats, it is incumbent on us that we will have that period of stability. As we ran this campaign, we set out to consider the issues that the key priorities for the British people. Getting the Brexit deal right, ensuring that we can identify and do something about the challenges facing our country, doing what is in the national interest.feedback

As we look ahead and wait to see what the final results will be, I know - as I say - the country needs a period of stability and whatever the results are the Conservative Party will ensure we fulfil our duty in ensuring that stability so that we can all, as one country, go forward together.feedback

I often say that no deal is better than a bad deal because that is in Britain's national interest. Jeremy Corbyn seems to think that any deal, no matter what the price, no matter what the terms, is better than no deal. That is why, he is not fit to negotiate a good Brexit deal for Britain.feedback

I will now form a government. A government that can provide certainty and lead Britain forward at a critical time for our country. This Government will guide the country through the crucial Brexit talks that begin in just ten days, and will deliver on the will of the British people by taking the United Kingdom out of the European Union.feedback

If we get Brexit right, we can build a Britain that is more prosperous and more secure. I can only build that better country and get the right deal in Brussels with the support of the British people.feedback

If we get Brexit right, we can build a Britain that is more prosperous and more secure – a Britain in which prosperity and opportunity is shared by all. I can only build that better country and get the right deal in Brussels with the support of the British people. So whoever you have voted for in the past, if that is the future you want, then vote Conservative today and we can all go forward together.feedback

Today is a day for everybody across the country to fix their sights on the future and vote for a better future of fairness, security and opportunity for all.feedback

No. The reason we did what we did with control orders was because the courts were increasingly knocking those control orders down, so we did introduce the Tpims and we have subsequently enhanced the Tpims. Now we're seeing the threat evolving, becoming more complex, it's right we look again at what powers are needed to ensure the police and security services have what they need. No, what I've set out is very clear. We are seeing the terrorist threat changing, we are seeing it evolve and we need to respond to that.feedback

Because I and my team have the plan to ensure we get the Brexit negotiations right and they start 11 days after election day.feedback

No, what I have done in getting out and about around the country, I think people do see that is one of the great opportunities is to be able to interact with voters directly, to be able to hear directly from them and them being able to hear directly from me.feedback

He has been campaigning, but he has been campaigning in a number of seats. Rather than just being with me, he has actually been out there knocking on doors and working for other candidates. But we also have a vision for a stronger, fairer, more prosperous Britain for everybody, and that is what we will do if in Government. I don't tweet so… I was mentally calculating 140 characters.feedback

Your country needs you. Rarely can a candidate for high office have been so singularly ill-equipped for the task.feedback

We should make it easier for the authorities to deport foreign terror suspects to their own countries. We should do even more to restrict the freedom and the movements of terrorist suspects when we have enough evidence to know they present a threat, but not enough evidence to prosecute them in full in court. If I am elected as Prime Minister on Thursday, I can tell you that this vital work begins on Friday. We need to get international agreements to regulate cyberspace and stop terrorist planning online. We need to stamp out extremism in our own communities, here in Britain.feedback

If I am elected as Prime Minister on Thursday, that work begins on Friday. MI5 and the police have already said they would be reviewing how they dealt with Manchester and I would expect them to do exactly the same in relation to London Bridge. What Government needs to do is, and what the Government that comes in after Thursday's election needs to be willing to do, is to give more powers to the police and security service when they need them, needs to deal with this issue of terrorism and extremism online and also needs to be able to call out extremism here in the United Kingdom.feedback

You know what some people call us: the nasty party.feedback

It's time to remember the good that governments can do.feedback

Give me your backing in the polling station tomorrow to battle for Britain in Brussels. Get those negotiations wrong and the consequences will be dire.feedback

What we need to do now is see how the threat is evolving, and it is evolving, we're seeing terrorism breeding terrorism.feedback

Oh, goodness me. Well, I suppose … gosh. Do you know, I'm not quite sure. I can't think what the naughtiest thing … . Well, nobody is ever perfectly behaved, are they? I mean, you know, there are times when … I have to confess, when me and my friend, sort of, used to run through the fields of wheat. The farmers weren't too pleased about that.feedback

I absolutely recognise people's concerns. We want to stop attacks. What we need to do now is see how the threat is evolving… we need to ask how we can adapt our response.feedback

Well, I've heard bits of it and to be perfectly honest I'm not very happy about it. I don't much like it, I don't think anybody would when they heard a song about themselves like that.feedback

As we leave the European Union, we are determined to make the UK the world's most dynamic digital economy with first-class connectivity as we build a brighter future. Our plans to roll out high-speed broadband and extend mobile coverage will mean people can stay connected wherever they live, work, travel and learn – and help end the scourge of not spots.feedback

But delivering all this depends on getting Brexit right, which is why I need every vote on Thursday to strengthen my hand in the Brexit negotiations which begin just 11 days after polling day.feedback

We cannot and must not pretend that things can continue as they are. Things need to change ... There is – to be frank – far too much tolerance of extremism in our country.feedback

I have been responsible for giving the police extra powers to deal with terrorism. Jeremy Corbyn has boasted that he has opposed those powers and opposed the powers for anti-terror actions throughout his time in parliament. And I also support, absolutely, shoot-to-kill and I think what we saw on our streets on Saturday was how important that was.feedback

I mean, for anybody there would be, you know, people watching this who will be in similar circumstances of having lost both their parents at a relatively early age and it is quite, you know, it is a shock and of course, as I say, without brothers or sisters to share that with, but that's why it was so good to have Philip but also to have that wider community that provided support to me.feedback

I think I was a child, I was quite, sort of, bookish as a child, I enjoyed going to school, I enjoyed reading books, I enjoyed learning. I was an only child, so of course I didn't have brothers and sisters who I was playing with and so I obviously had friends but sometimes had to just go out and, sort of, do things on my own. Oh, goodness me. Well, I suppose… gosh. Do you know, I'm not quite sure. I can't think what the naughtiest thing. Well, it was, obviously, it was a tremendous shock, particularly when my father died following a car crash as you say.feedback

I think Sadiq Khan is doing a good job and it's wrong to say anything else - he's doing a good job. We're working with him, working together and that's important - central government and the London mayoralty and his officials working together to ensure we are responding to the attack.feedback

We need to pull together in order to try and deliver on the Brexit negotiations, not trying to drive these four nations apart, which is what Nicola Sturgeon is trying to do. In this week of all weeks we stand together, England, Scotland, Wales and Northern Ireland as one United Kingdom.feedback

We have protected counter-terrorism policing budgets, we have also provided funding for an increase in the number of armed police officers. This was an attack on London and the United Kingdom, but it was also an attack on the free world.feedback

Do you agree, and would that mean you were wrong to cut numbers? It's not just about resource, it's about the powers people have. You're referring to a speech I gave to the Police Federation where I was very clear with the Police Federation that they needed to reform. And goes what? The Police Federation took that message and they are reforming. I think Sadiq Khan is doing a good job and it is wrong to say anything else. Those police officers, within eight minutes, shot the three attackers and killed them, and that saved countless lives.feedback

JTAC, the independent joint terrorism analysis centre, have confirmed that the national threat level remains at severe, that means that a terrorist attack is highly likely. It is now clear that, sadly, victims came from a number of nationalities. This was an attack on London and the United Kingdom, but it was also an attack on the free world. The Commissioner of the Metropolitan Police has said that the Met is well resourced, and they are, and that they have very powerful counter-terrorism capabilities and they do.feedback

We believe we are experiencing a new trend in the threat we face, as terrorism breeds terrorism. It's time to say enough is enough.feedback

This was an attack on London and England, but it was also an attack on the free world.feedback

If it is David Davis, fine. If it is Olly Robins [permanent secretary of the Department for Exiting the European Union] then fine, he knows the files, although maybe less the economic ones. We need to know who we are negotiating with ... I don't think they have a plan.feedback

On Thursday the people of the UK have a very simple choice. The Commissioner of the Metropolitan Police has said that the Met is well resourced, and they are, and that they have very powerful counter-terrorism capabilities and they do. We have protected counter terrorism policing budgets, we have also provided funding for an increase in the number of armed police officers and since 2015 we have protected overall police budgets - and that's despite the fact that Jeremy Corbyn's Labour Party in the House of Commons suggested that police budgets could be cut.feedback

Enough is enough. We cannot and must not pretend that things can continue as they are. On behalf of the people of London and on behalf of the whole country, I want to thank and pay tribute to the professionalism and bravery of the police and the emergency services, and the courage of members of the public who defended themselves and others from the attackers. Everybody needs to go about their lives as they normally would. Our society should continue to function in accordance with our values. We must come together, we must pull together, and united we will take on and defeat our enemies.feedback

Things need to change. It is time to say, enough is enough,'' she said. This is as we all know, the third terrorist attack Britain has experienced in the last three months. We cannot and must not pretend that things can continue as they are. Things need to change. It will only be defeated when we turn people's minds away from this violence and make them understand that our values, pluralistic British values, are superior to anything offered by the preachers and supporters of hate.feedback

They are bound together by the single evil ideology of Islamist Extremism that preaches hatred, sows division, and promotes sectarianism. It is an ideology that claims our western values of freedom, democracy, and human rights are incompatible with the religion of Islam. It is an ideology that is a perversion of Islam and a perversion of the truth. Defeating this ideology is one of the great challenges of our time.feedback

We need to work with allied democratic governments to reach international agreements that regulate cyberspace to prevent the spread of extremist and terrorism planning. And we need to do everything we can at home to reduce the risks of extremism online. As the nature of the threat we face becomes more complex, more fragmented, more hidden, especially online, the strategy needs to keep up. The whole of our country needs to come together to take on this extremism, and we need to live our lives not in a series of separated, segregated communities, but as one truly United Kingdom.feedback

We cannot and must not pretend that things can continue as they are, . We believe we are experiencing a new trend in the threat we face as terrorism breeds terrorism, and perpetrators are inspired to attack not only on the basis of carefully constructed plots after years of planning and training, and not even as lone attackers radicalised online, but by copying one another and often using the crudest of means of attack. Violence can never be allowed to disrupt the democratic process, so those campaigns will resume in full tomorrow and the general election will go ahead as planned on Thursday.feedback

Things "need to change. We need to do anything we can to reduce extremism online, as this ideology cannot be defeated through military intervention alone….[Islamist ideology] cannot be given the space to breathe.feedback

And if we need to increase the length of custodial sentences for terrorist-related offences – even apparently less serious offences – that is what we will do.feedback

We need to work with allied democratic governments to reach international agreements that regulate cyberspace to prevent the spread of extremist and terrorism planning. We must not forget about the safe spaces that continue to exist in the real world. Yes, that means taking military action to destroy Isis in Iraq and Syria. [T]here is - to be frank - far too much tolerance of extremism in our country. So we need to become far more robust in identifying it and stamping it out across the public sector and across society. That will require some difficult, and often embarrassing, conversations.feedback

In light of what we are learning about the changing threat, we need to review Britain's counter-terrorism strategy to make sure the police and security services have all the powers they need. And if we need to increase the length of custodial sentences for terrorism-related offenses, even apparently less serious offenses, that is what we will do. Yes, that means taking military action to destroy ISIS in Iraq and Syria. But it also means taking action here at home.feedback

As a mark of respect the two political parties have suspended our national campaigns for today, but violence can never be allowed to disrupt the democratic process, so those campaigns will resume in full tomorrow and the general election will go ahead as planned on Thursday. First thing is all these attacks are bound together by an evil ideology that is a perversion of Islam and perversion of the truth.feedback

But we believe we are experiencing a new trend in the threat we face, as terrorism breeds terrorism. It will only be defeated when we turn people's minds away from this violence and make them understand that our values, pluralistic British values, are superior to anything offered by the preachers and supporters of hate. We need to become far more robust in identifying it and stamping it out across the public sector and across the society. That will require some difficult and often embarrassing conversations.feedback

Five credible plots have been disrupted since March. We are experiencing a new trend in the threat we face as terrorism breeds terrorism. Perpetrators are inspired to attack by copying one another and often using the crudest means of attack. As a mark of respect the two political parties have suspended our national campaigns for today, but violence can never be allowed to disrupt the democratic process, so those campaigns will resume in full tomorrow and the general election will go ahead as planned on Thursday.feedback

Following updates from police and security officials, I can confirm that the terrible incident in London is being treated as a potential act of terrorism. This is a fast moving investigation. I want to express my huge gratitude to the police and emergency services who are on the scene. Our thoughts are with those who are caught up in these dreadful events.feedback

And at the same time the security intelligence services and police have disrupted five credible plots since the Westminster attack in March. In terms of their planning and execution the recent attacks are not connected but we believe we are experiencing a new trend in the threat we face, as terrorism breeds terrorism, and perpetrators are inspired to attack not only on the basis of carefully constructed plots after years of planning and training, and not even as lone attackers radicalised online, but by copying one another and often using the crudest means of attack.feedback

An attacker attempted to break into Parliament and was shot dead within 20 yards of the gate. If his intention was to gain access to this building we should be clear that he did not succeed. The police heroically did their job.feedback

I've said that I think no deal would be better than a bad deal. Now I'm confident we can get a good deal with the right plan for those negotiations, because I think a good deal is in our interests and in the interests of the rest of the EU. But we have to be prepared to stand up for Britain. We have to be prepared to go in there, recognising that we're not willing to accept a bad deal.feedback

Our position on tax hasn't changed. We have set it out in the manifesto. What people will know when they go to vote on Thursday is that it is the Conservative Party that always has been, is and always will be a low-tax party. When people come to vote they know they have a choice between a Conservative Party that always has been and always will be a party that believes in lower taxes and a Labour Party whose manifesto we know will cost ordinary working people.feedback

And I'm being honest with you in terms of saying that we will put more money into the NHS, but there isn't a magic money tree that we can shake that suddenly provides for everything that people want.feedback

I'm not going to make any excuses for the experience you had. That's why I think it's so important that we do deal with mental health.feedback

If you don't think Corbyn – propped up by the SNP and Lib Dems – is up to being Prime Minister, negotiating Brexit, or keeping our economy strong and nation secure, there's no safe way to vote Labour wherever you live. I believe in the British people. I believe that with determination, ingenuity and common sense, we can use this moment of great national change to shape a better future for Britain.feedback

The Conservative party continues to believe that these allegations are unfounded. Craig Mackinlay is innocent until proven guilty and he remains our candidate.feedback

We will continue make sure that students get the support that they need, but what's most important is that when they finish studying there are great job opportunities for them to take up. That is why it is important to get the Brexit deal right. We want to be global leaders in free trade and that's around the world...we weren't able to do this as members of the EU. There's a couple of shops that I normally go to when I'm looking for shoes, particularly my kitten heels, that's Russell and Bromley and LK Bennett.feedback

If we are in the scenario, [the electorate] want parties to talk to each other, so to refuse to do that would be against what the electorate wanted.feedback

I think they [EU countries] all benefit from the expertise, the skills, the size of the capability of the City and anything that diminished that would not be sensible for them because they're benefiting from it at the moment. First of all this doesn't happen over night, it takes years to build up the whole ecosystem that supports financial services, and actually London is a benefit, the City of London is a benefit to other countries, to businesses in other countries.feedback

We need to make sure that we're getting a good deal for the City in the future. I would hope that actually what people will see in the remaining 27 member states is the significant role that the City plays in supporting their economies and their businesses and also the fact that it has taken many years for the City to build up those expertise, to build up that ecosystem. That can't be done by somebody else at the drop of a hat.feedback

That's what we're working for. We're working to bring immigration down to the tens of thousands. The reason why we want to want to bring net migration down to sustainable levels, which we have set at the tens of thousands, is because of the impact that immigration has, when it's too fast and too high and uncontrolled, on people. So we believe it is right to work for those sustainable levels but what I've always said and we made clear in the manifesto is that you have to consistently work at it. There is no single thing that you can do that suddenly creates that particular set of numbers.feedback

That's what we're working for. We're working to bring immigration down to the tens of thousands. Having been Home Secretary for six years this isn't something that you can just produce the magic bullet that suddenly does everything. What you have to do is keep working at it - it's a consistent working at it.feedback

I believe in the British people. I believe that with determination, ingenuity and common sense, we can use this moment of great national change to shape a better future for Britain. So this is the time to choose. This great national moment needs a great national effort in which we pull together with a unity of purpose and – however we voted in the referendum last June – we come together with a determination to make a success of the years ahead. He doesn't believe in Britain. Because if we get Brexit right, then together we can do great things.feedback

As we come together behind this great national mission – to make a success of Brexit and of the opportunities it brings – we will build a more united country as our shared values, interests and aspirations bring us together. This is the prize – the opportunity that is within reach, a stronger, more secure and prosperous nation, a brighter, fairer future for all. In one week's time, they have the opportunity to affirm that decision and secure that brighter future by voting for me to continue as Prime Minister.feedback

The country is coming together but Westminster is not. The "division in Westminster will risk our ability to make a success of Brexit.feedback

Because if we get Brexit right, then together we can do great things. We can build a Britain beyond Brexit that is stronger, fairer and more prosperous than it is today. A Britain beyond Brexit that is more global and outward-looking. A Britain alive with possibilities, more confident in itself, more united and more secure. A country our children and grandchildren are proud to call home. What the people in Brussels will be looking at is how I have negotiated with them in the past; where I have gone with a clear remit from the UK when I was Home Secretary and I came back with what I asked for.feedback

Jeremy Corbyn has said that terror attacks in Britain are our own fault . . . and I want to make something clear to Jeremy Corbyn and to you: there can never be an excuse for terrorism, there can be no excuse for what happened in Manchester.feedback

You can vote for any other party and risk Jeremy Corbyn becoming Prime Minister in just nine days' time and a Prime minister with a chaotic hung parliament. If I lose just six (seats) then the government loses its majority and we risk Jeremy Corbyn becoming prime minister.feedback

The promise of Brexit is great, the opportunities before us enormous. If we get Brexit right, then together we can do great things. If I lose just six (seats) then the government loses its majority and we risk Jeremy Corbyn becoming prime minister.feedback

I think we should all worry about the alternative. The alternative is the possibility of Jeremy Corbyn being Prime Minister and John McDonnell being in charge of our economic future and Diane Abbott in charge of our national security and all the time the strings being pulled by the Liberal Democrats and the Scottish nationalists.feedback

What we need to do is have proper control of our immigration and, of course, we are going to be able to put in rules for people coming from the EU to the UK once we leave the European Union. I want to ensure we control migration. Jeremy Corbyn and the Labour Party want uncontrolled migration.feedback

There's a very clear choice at this election; there's a very clear difference between myself, and Jeremy Corbyn and the Labour party. I want to ensure we are controlling migration because too high uncontrolled migration puts pressure on our public services, but it also lowers wages at the lower end of the income scale.feedback

Everything depends on and will be defined by the outcome of these next five years.feedback

He is simply not ready to govern and not prepared to lead. He is not prepared to use the nuclear deterrent. He is not prepared to take action against terrorists. He is not prepared to give the police the powers they need to keep us safe. Now, I know that's an image that doesn't bear thinking about, but actually this is very serious.feedback

It's important that of course British Airways has a compensation scheme, that I understand it, for people who are travelling, but it is up to them to sort their I.T. out and to ensure that they're able to provide the services that people expect them to provide, as British Airways.feedback

Last night showed that Jeremy Corbyn's minders can put him in a smart blue suit for an interview with Jeremy Paxman but, with his position on Brexit, he will find himself alone and naked in the negotiating chamber of the European Union. Now I know that's an image that doesn't bear thinking about, but actually this is very serious. Every school in every village, town and city needs us to make a success of Brexit. If we want to continue to play our part on the world stage, standing up for our liberal values, with strong defences to protect us – we need to make a success of Brexit.feedback

But if you don't vote at this election and if you don't vote for me at this election you risk sleepwalking into the very real danger that Jeremy Corbyn will find himself in the hot seat, in the negotiating chair on your behalf.feedback

Now I know that is an image that doesn't bear thinking about but actually this is very serious. Your vote is more important than ever because every vote for me in this election will if I am returned as Prime Minister strengthen my hand in the negotiations that are about to start.feedback

I am ready to go. Jeremy Corbyn is not. There will be no time to waste, no way of stalling, no way of asking Europe to hang on while we figure out what to do. The Europeans are ready to go and are determined to fight for a deal that works for them.feedback

He is not prepared to use the nuclear deterrent. He is not prepared to take action against terrorists. He is not prepared to give the police the powers they need to keep us safe. This is not time for a weak government and a weak leader to be making it up as they go along, particularly not when that leader has shown poor judgment and weak leadership throughout the process so far. It means signing up to Britain being governed by EU laws and EU courts for years to come, so that we have no control over our laws, to free movement continuing indefinitely.feedback

27 other European countries are lining up to oppose us.feedback

What the people in Brussels look at is the record I had negotiating with them ... and delivering for this country on a number of issues on justice and home affairs which people said we were never going to get.feedback

The questions for this campaign haven't changed since I called it six weeks ago. Who do you trust to stand up for Britain, to negotiate for Brexit and get the best possible deal for Britain in Europe? Everything depends on getting Brexit right.feedback

That government will be weak abroad because it will be compromised at home. Those negotiations will start just 11 days after polling day and there won't be any putting it off. It won't be possible to stall it. The Europeans are ready. That's the timetable that has been set. The Europeans know that if they have a weak government in a hung parliament that government won't be able to stand up for Britain.feedback

We are not leaving Europe. We are leaving the European Union. We continue to want a deep and special partnership with the remaining 27 countries in the European Union and we will continue to be committed to working with others in Europe both in terms of ... a comprehensive free trade agreement but also in terms of our security. Those negotiations will start just 11 days after polling day and there won't be any putting it off. It won't be possible to stall it.feedback

Nobody can guarantee a real terms per pupil funding increase. People are focusing on funding but actually we need to ensure we see good or outstanding schools. That isn't just about funding, it's about a whole variety of things.feedback

The last seven years of Conservative Government have delivered real steps towards tackling domestic violence - we are punishing more perpetrators, and helping more victims get refuge and justice. But we will launch a relentless drive to help survivors find justice and increase the number of successful prosecutions. This hidden scandal, that takes place every day in homes across Britain, must be tackled head on.feedback

Our response to this violence must be to come closer together, to help each other, to love more, to sing louder and to live more kindly and generously than we did before. We will not quit or operate in fear. We won't let this divide us. We won't let hate win.feedback

This is an ongoing investigation and obviously the police and security services are continuing to look into the terrible attack that took place but significant activity has taken place by the police over the last 24 hours and it is in the light of that that the independent JTAC, the Joint Terrorism Analysis Centre, has taken the decision to reduce the threat level from 'critical' to 'severe' but the public should be clear that a 'severe' threat level does mean that an attack is highly likely and everyone should remain vigilant.feedback

A significant amount of police activity has taken place over the last 24 hours and there are now 11 suspects in custody. The public should be clear about what this means. A threat level of severe means an attack is highly likely. The country should remain vigilant. I want to make one thing very clear to Jeremy Corbyn and to you, and it is that there can never, ever be an excuse for terrorism.feedback

Today G-7 leaders have joined Britain in condemning this barbaric act of violence. In particular, I want to see them report this vile content to the authorities and block the users who spread it.feedback

We need to be stronger and more resolute in standing up to these people. There is clearly a role for government in tackling extremism where it involves behaviour that is or ought to be criminal. But there is also a role for government to help people and build up organisations in society to promote and defend Britain's pluralistic values, and stand up to the extremists.feedback

As we saw when Cadbury's – that great Birmingham company – was bought by Kraft, or when AstraZeneca was almost sold to Pfizer, transient shareholders, who are mostly companies investing other people's money, are not the only people with an interest when firms are sold or close. Workers have a stake, local communities have a stake, and often the whole country has a stake. A proper industrial strategy wouldn't automatically stop the sale of British firms to foreign ones.feedback

I have been here with the G7, working with other international leaders to fight terrorism. At the same time, Jeremy Corbyn has said that terror attacks in Britain are our own fault and he has chosen to do that a few days after one of the worst terrorist atrocities we have experienced in the United Kingdom. I want to make something clear to Jeremy Corbyn and to you: there can never be an excuse for terrorism, there can be no excuse for what happened in Manchester.feedback

The choice that people face at the general election has just become starker. It's a choice between me, working constantly to protect the national interest and to protect our security - and Jeremy Corbyn , who frankly isn't up to the job.feedback

It is vital we do more to cooperate with our partners in the region to step up returns and prosecutions of foreign fighters. This means improving intelligence-sharing, evidence gathering and bolstering countries' police and legal processes. As the military situation on the ground changes more of these fighters may try to return to their original country, and pose a threat there. We need to securely share data on our foreign fighters, such as names and nationalities, so they can be spotted by different countries as they cross borders, and decisions made on whether they should be arrested.feedback

Jeremy Corbyn has said that terror attacks in Britain are our own fault and he's chosen to do that just a few days after one of the worst atrocities we have experienced in the United Kingdom. I want to make it clear: there can never ever be an excuse for terrorism. The plan to ensure there was military support for the police is a well prepared plan, developed a while ago so that at a time we go to critical in our threat level that extra support could be made available and that is exactly what happened. Make no mistake, the fight is moving from the battlefield to the internet.feedback

There is much debate about what the UK's obligations might be or indeed what our rights might be in terms of money being paid in in the past. We make it clear that we would look at those both rights and obligations.feedback

I am also going to be pushing the UK's agenda on burden-sharing and we are proud, as the UK, that we meet the target of spending 2% of our GDP on defence and 20% of our defence budget on equipment. And other nations must be prepared to take responsibility and that includes more investment in defence.feedback

On the issue of the intelligence sharing with the United States of America, we have a special relationship with the USA. It is our deepest defense and security partnership. Of course, that partnership is built on trust and part of that trust is knowing that intelligence can be shared confidently, and I will be making clear to President Trump today that intelligence that is shared between law enforcement agencies must remain secure.feedback

At this moment of enormous national significance there should be unity here in Westminster, but instead there is division. The country is coming together, but Westminster is not.feedback

A strong, capable and united Nato is at the heart of the security of each and every one of our nations. Our unity in responding to common threats is our most potent weapon.feedback

Our unity in responding to common threats is our most potent weapon. We must redouble our resolve to meet the threats to our shared security, whether from terrorism or Russia.feedback

In the coming days and weeks, there will of course be many events hosted up and down the country. The police will work with the organizers and hosts of these events, to come to a judgment about how they can go ahead while making sure the people who attend them are safe and secure. We will take every measure available to us and provide every additional resource we can to the police and the security services as they work to protect the public.feedback

This means that armed police officers responsible for duties such as guarding key sites will be replaced by members of the armed forces, which will allow the police to significantly increase the number of armed officers on patrol in key locations. You might also see military personnel deployed at certain events, such as concerts and sports matches, helping the police to keep the public safe. In all circumstances, members of the armed forces who are deployed in this way will be under the command of police officers.feedback

I do not want to unduly alarm the members of the public. This morning, I said that the joint terrorism analysis center – the independent organization responsible for setting the threat level on the basis of the intelligence available – was keeping the threat level under constant review. It has now concluded, on the basis of today's investigations, that the threat level should be increased for the time being from severe to critical. It is a possibility that we cannot ignore that there is a wider group of individuals linked to this attack. The terrorists will never win and we will prevail.feedback

There is no 'Mayism, . There is good, solid Conservatism.feedback

We are working to establish the full details of what is being treated by the police as an appalling terrorist attack. All our thoughts are with the victims and the families of those who have been affected. I called an election on this whole issue of trust, because the question that people face is, who do they trust to take this country though the Brexit negotiations?feedback

My manifesto is honest and upfront about our challenges. It includes plans to strengthen the social care system with more and sustainable funding to cope with the long-term pressures caused by the fact that we are an ageing society. We will make sure nobody has to sell their family home to pay for care. We will make sure there's an absolute limit on what people need to pay. And you will never have to go below £100,000 of your savings, so you will always have something to pass on to your family.feedback

Nothing has changed! Nothing has changed! We have not changed the principles of our policy that we set out in our manifesto. Those policies remain exactly the same. There will be aspects of how this operates that we will consult on through the Green Paper. We were honest that we were going to have a Green Paper and we would be consulting people about how the system operates. We are providing a system that provides people with dignity in their old age but doing it in a way that is fair across the generations.feedback

Since my manifesto was published, the proposals have been subject to fake claims made by Jeremy Corbyn. The only things he has left to offer in this campaign are fake claims, fear and scaremongering. So I want to make a further point clear. This manifesto says that we will come forward with a consultation paper, a government green paper. And that consultation will include an absolute limit on the amount people have to pay for their care costs. So let me reiterate. We are proposing the right funding model for social care. We will make sure nobody has to sell their family home to pay for care.feedback

We don't need to just look like we can walk away, we need to be able to walk away...Under the circumstances, if that was necessary, we would be in a position to do it. There is much debate about what the U.K.'s obligations might be or indeed what our rights might be. We make it clear that we would look at those both rights and obligations.feedback

We think this is the best way [...] to enable more people to stay in their homes.feedback

Nothing has changed from the principles on social care policy that we set out on our manifesto. Just one figure: in 10 years' time, there will be two million more people over the age of 75. Now, our social care system will collapse if we don't do anything about it. I'm not going to bury my head in the sand, I'm not going to play politics with it, which is what Jeremy Corbyn is doing. We have not rewritten the manifesto. The principles on which we have based our social care policy remain absolutely the same.feedback

Jeremy Corbyn wants to duck this reality – and play politics. But there will be 2 million more people over 75 years old in Britain over the next decade alone. Our social care system will collapse unless we make some important decisions now about how we fund it. The UK's seat at the negotiating table will be filled by me or Jeremy Corbyn. The deal we seek will be negotiated by me or Jeremy Corbyn. There will be no time to waste and no time for a new government to find its way. So the stakes in this election are high.feedback

We think this is the best way, having looked at it, to enable more people to stay in their homes, because they won't be worried about the cost of care because they know that will be sorted after they have died. But there will be a sum to pass on to their children.feedback

I'm backing those that want a more secure and full life. I'm backing those whose only wish is that their children will do better than themselves.feedback

Because if we don't get this right, the consequences for the United Kingdom and for the economic security of ordinary working people will be dire. If we do, the opportunities ahead are great. And to those that look to their government and their politicians for a little help and support, I'm backing you too. Because too often in the past, ordinary working people have found the help and support they need just isn't there. And I know that sense of disenchantment is particularly acute here in Wales.feedback

We saw that when people here in Wrexham and across Wales chose to ignore the hysterical warnings of Labour, Plaid Cymru and Liberal Democrat politicians in Cardiff Bay, and voted to leave the EU. We see it now in the way those same politicians refuse to respect that vote as they try to find new ways to put obstacles in our way. And the cause of that emerging gulf is clear. It is because the Labour Party has taken people in Wales for granted for decades - just as it has in other communities across Britain.feedback

That is why we need someone representing Britain who is 100 per cent committed to the cause.feedback

There are just 17 days to go until this crucial General Election. Just 11 days after that, the European Union wants the Brexit negotiations to begin. The UK's seat at the negotiating table will be filled by me or Jeremy Corbyn. The deal we seek will be negotiated by me or Jeremy Corbyn. There will be no time to waste and no time for a new government to find its way. So the stakes in this election are high. Not someone who is uncertain or unsure, but someone utterly determined to deliver the democratic will of the British people.feedback

The cold hard fact is that if I lose just six seats I will lose this election, and Jeremy Corbyn will be sitting down to negotiate with the presidents, prime ministers and chancellors of Europe. For anyone with any doubts about the importance of this election, the events of the past week should have put them to rest. With the publication of the Labour Party's manifesto on Tuesday, and the launch of my own plan on Thursday, it is clearer than ever just how much is at stake.feedback

No, I'm not. We are the party that believes in low taxation, recognises the importance of the strength of the economy - and that does mean ensuring business is supported.feedback

We were about to walk down a ramp and he said 'take my arm'. And then as we went down the ramp he took my hand. So there we are, that's what happened. But do I regret actually going shortly after the inauguration to see the new President of the country with which we have the deepest security and defence partnership. No, I think that partnership is very important for our security but also for the security of others. Look, it's not for me to comment on what is happening in Congress or what is happening in terms of internal American politics.feedback

Obviously the ability to speak English is an important part of that because if you don't speak English well then you will be less likely to be able to participate in general things that other people do, like speaking to your GP and speaking to your children's teachers.feedback

Well, obviously it's a full-on job in terms of the amount of time it takes. It is a job like no other.feedback

Yes, I do pray, but I don't go into details about how often and so forth. I'm a regular practising member of the Church of England.feedback

I've always been a Conservative and what we are doing is in the mainstream of political thinking in this country. Now, I do approach things in a different way - in the sense that my thinking on every job I do is just get in there, do the best I can and get on with it. This was one of the proposals that we had in our Green Paper on greater diversity in schools and the independent sector is already starting to respond positively to that. So I'm sure we're going to be able to work with them.feedback

I think if you are a person of faith, then faith underpins how you approach life.feedback

Yes, we've put that option into the manifesto, but actually I am confident that we will see the independent sector responding.feedback

What we've seen, sadly, is a limited number of instances where the public would feel that someone has been given an honour and then perhaps not met the standards of integrity that they would expect. I think we just need to look at what should be done. We see sportsmen and celebrities who make great contributions to our national life and to the standing of the United Kingdom. We also see people who work really hard in their local community, perhaps on a voluntary basis, making a real difference to people's lives. We want to make sure that contributions are properly recognised.feedback

The issue of public confidence in the public system is something that's been there from some time.feedback

The prospect of him walking through the door of Number 10, flanked by John McDonnell and Diane Abbott and propped up by the Liberal Democrat and nationalist parties, should scare us all. And make no mistake, it could happen. The cold hard fact is that if I lose just six seats I will lose this election, and Jeremy Corbyn will be sitting down to negotiate with the presidents, prime ministers and chancellors of Europe. Yet with his manifesto this week, he has demonstrated that he is simply not up to the job of leading Britain through the critical years ahead.feedback

Any decision that is taken about UK action in relation to [Assange] were he to leave the Ecuadorian embassy would be an operational matter for the police.feedback

There is much debate about what the UK's obligations might be or indeed what our rights might be in terms of money being paid in in the past. We make it clear that we would look at those both rights and obligations. There's the investment bank, there's the investment fund, there are various areas. This will be, as you know, an important part of the negotiations.feedback

I offer myself as your Prime Minister. Come with me as I lead Britain, strengthen my hand as I fight for Britain, stand with me as I deliver for Britain, and with confidence in ourselves and a unity of purpose in our country, let us all go forward together.feedback

Well, we have devolution in the United Kingdom and as a government we have given the Scottish Government significant powers in relation to welfare, and they make a number of decisions about various welfare benefits in Scotland. The decision we have made about winter fuel payments is that we will continue to ensure that the least well-off pensioners are supported but there is a principle of fairness. You see well-off pensioners getting help with their fuel bill and struggling ordinary families not having that help available.feedback

As Prime Minister of the United Kingdom, I care just as much about the futures of children from Ayrshire and Angus as I do about the futures of children in Kent or Carlisle. I want everyone in our country to have the chance to live secure and prosperous lives, and reach their full potential. That is because of a simple truth. Across the United Kingdom, we may be four nations, but at heart we are one people. We all have a stake in each other's success.feedback

Only the Conservative and Unionist Party has the strength and credibility to stand up to the Nationalists and defend our United Kingdom.feedback

There is no 'Mayism'...There is good solid Conservatism, which puts the interests of the country and the interests of ordinary working people at the heart of everything we do. The negotiations will undoubtedly be tough, and there will be give and take on both sides, but we continue to believe that no deal is better than a bad deal for the UK. It is ...a portrait of the kind of country I want (Britain) ...to be after Brexit as we chart our own way in the world.feedback

There is no Mayism, there is good, solid Conservativism.feedback

It's true to say the Chancellor and I and every other member of my team are focused on June 8. Our focus is on winning this General Election because it matters for the future of our country. As Philip says we have worked together for many years. Longer than we would care to identify – that's an age-related comment, nothing else.feedback

Rather than pursue an agenda based on a supposed centre ground defined and established by elites in Westminster, we will govern in the interests of the mainstream of the British public. Margaret Thatcher was a Conservative, I am a Conservative, this is a Conservative manifesto. There is good solid Conservatism that puts the interests of the country and the interests of ordinary working people at the heart of everything we do in government.feedback

The more seats we win on June 8 the stronger Scotland's voice will be.feedback

Allows us to reduce and control the number of people who come to Britain, while still allowing us to attract the skilled workers our economy needs.feedback

There is no Mayism. I know you journalists like to write about it. There is good, solid Conservatism which puts the interests of the country and the interests of ordinary working people at the heart of everything we do in government. Margaret Thatcher was a Conservative, I'm a Conservative, this is a Conservative manifesto.feedback

I think it's true to say, that the Chancellor and I, and every other member of our team, are focused on June 8.feedback

Decisions about what President Trump discusses with anybody that he has in the White House is a matter for President Trump. We continue to work with the United States and continue to share intelligence with the United States as we do with others around the world because we are all working together to deal with the threats that we face.feedback

We have a very special relationship with the United States of America, this is the most important defence and security relationship we have around the world. We continue to work together and we have confidence in that relationship with the United States, and it helps to keep us all safer. We continue to work with the United States and continue to share intelligence with the United States, as we do with others around the world, because we are all working together to deal with the threats that we face.feedback

We must not be complacent and I am not complacent. I will not take anything for granted and neither will the team I lead, because there is too much at stake.feedback

That's what we want to ensure when we look at the help that we're giving to people with any disability is that particularly we focus on those who are most in need, so that we're helping those who are most in need.feedback

So as well as extra money going into the NHS we need to make sure we are spending is being spent as effectively as possible with an absolute focus on patient care. I didn't actually see any of them but I'm told it was in the realms of claims that weren't accurate. So it is a concern. But social media does bring huge benefits as well. I have never been fox hunting. If I am elected I will certainly serve my full term. I am pretty certain it (Brexit) can be done in those two years. A new parliament will take us through to 2022 which is three years beyond the 2019 and I will be round.feedback

I inject five times a day, . I am a type one diabetic. That means when I eat, I have to inject insulin, which I do. I will be injecting myself four or five times a day... You just get into a routine. You depend on that insulin and you just build that routine into your daily life. The crucial thing to me is being a diabetic doesn't stop you from doing anything. Overall in the five years from 2015 to 2020 we are spending half a trillion pounds on the NHS.feedback

The atrocious violence that is being shown against civilians in Syria is at the hands of the Assad regime, and no one should forget that.feedback

We have got a lot of plans for people for people with mental health…. And learning difficulties. Because… I haven't got a carer at the moment and I am angry. I would like somebody to help me because I can't do everything that I want to do. Talk about everybody, not just me, I am talking for everybody who has got mental health problems and everybody who has got learning difficulties. I want them not to have their money taken away from them and being crippled. The fat cats keep the money and us lot get nothing!feedback

My view is that it should be a free vote for parliament so members of parliament individually should be able to exercise their view on this matter. During the Conservative Party leadership campaign, we started to see some pretty nasty videos being sent round about me. I didn't actually see any of them but I'm told it was in the realms of claims that weren't accurate. So it is a concern. But social media does bring huge benefits as well. If I am elected I will certainly serve my full term. I am pretty certain it (Brexit) can be done in those two years.feedback

The fact that different ethnic groups are being paid less for doing the same jobs is an injustice which cannot be allowed in 21st-century Britain. My plan will deliver a fairer deal for all workers, by extending rights and protections, guaranteeing rises in the national living wage and delivering a strong and stable economy.feedback

What I can do is ensure that we are giving more help to people with mental health problems and learning disabilities and that is exactly what we are doing and we made an announcement the other day.feedback

No. It was clear warnings were given to hospital trusts but this is not something that focused on attacking the NHS here on the UK. Europol say there are 200,000 victims across the world. Cyber security is an issue that we need to address. That's why the Government, when we came into Government in 2010, put money into cyber security. It's why we are putting £2 billion into cyber security over the coming years and, of course, created the National Cyber Security Centre. We take cyber security seriously.feedback

No. It was clear (that) warnings were given to hospital trusts. We take cyber security seriously.feedback

There is only one leader at this election who will put rights and opportunities for ordinary working families first. The choice next month is clear: economic stability and a better deal for workers under my Conservative team, or chaos under Jeremy Corbyn, whose nonsensical policies would trash the economy and destroy jobs. First, while it is important that the voices of workers and consumers should be represented, I can categorically tell you this is not about mandating works councils, or the direct appointment of workers or trade union representatives on boards.feedback
