Prepared to leave EU without a Brexit deal, says Theresa May

"I think you have to".

Ms Barnett said it was "quite troubling" Mr Corbyn did not know the cost, adding "It hardly inspires the voters".

Challenged over whether he would "soften" the UK's foreign policy, Mr Corbyn said: "It's not about softening our foreign policy".

"Can I give you the exact figure in a moment?"

Corbyn, meanwhile, emphasised that Labour's manifesto was anti-austerity, promising more funding for the NHS.

The figure differed from a costing given in a webchat on Mumsnet of £5.3 billion because that included an additional £500 million to reopen Sure Start centres. Of course they would be uprated, Corbyn finally said.

British Prime Minister Theresa May gestures, during a general election broadcast, in London, Monday May 29, 2017.?Prime Minister Theresa May and Labour Party leader Jeremy Corbyn will face a live studio audience and a tough TV interviewer as the general election campaign moves to the airwaves. "My office is not run chaotically at all".

The PM confirmed an overall cap would be put on costs, which had not been included in the Tories' election manifesto, but did not say where this would be set.

Mr Corbyn also dismissed suggestions made by some of his supporters online that he had been treated unfairly in the interview.

"What we had to do when we came into government in 2010 was to ensure that we were living within our means and that was very important because of the economic situation we had inherited", she said.

May insisted repeatedly that as Prime Minister after the election on 8 June she would be prepared to leave the European Union without negotiating a deal on trade. "The amount of debt that I have, personally, it nearly put me off going to uni".

May was heckled and laughed at by some members of the audience at Monday's TV appearance when discussing her education policy, and when interviewer Jeremy Paxman asked whether the European Union would see her as a "blowhard who collapses at the first sign of gunfire" after she softened her plans on old age care. "It seems [Corbyn] has been borrowing Diane Abbott's calculator", Carmichael said.

Labour say they would would also push nurseries to employ a graduate-led workforce, increase staff wages and improve training opportunities, and look to extend maternity pay to 12 months at a later date.

Mr Corbyn said there was a period of silence for "everyone who died in Northern Ireland" at the 1987 event.

"I did everything and I do everything that I possibly can [to stop the abuse]", he said. I met Angela and all the women who wrote to me and pointed out what our procedures were, pointed out what the policies of the party were.

"I never get upset by these things". Ilford South's Mike Gapes said: "I have had foul antisemitic abuse on Twitter (and I am not Jewish) but I've noticed how it is much worse for women".

The Labour leader replied: "What is your estimate?"

"Too many parents have been let down, unable to go back to work due to the cost of childcare". "You've announced a major policy and you don't know how much it will cost?"

This morning saw Labour outline plans to increase access to free childcare, extending the current 30-hour scheme to all two to four-year-olds.
