The last update before you vote!

As we hurtle closer to voting day, we thought it would be useful to send you the most popular and important factchecks on the big election issues including health, immigration, crime and the UK economy.

 

The big stories

 

The Manifestos

 

Health

The NHS and health have featured large in this General Election. Is the NHS in crisis? Are we spending more or less on it? Will changes to immigration policy affect staffing? Here are our key explainers around the NHS:

Full Fact’s Health Hub has more factchecks and explainers.

 

Economy

The UK economy has been one of the biggest issues of this General Election. Do we have a “strong and stable” economy, or are we living in a deficit-ridden country where insecure, precarious work is on the rise?

Full Fact’s Economy Hub has more of the answers.

 

Immigration

With questions ranging from freedom of movement, the rights of EU citizens in Britain, the refugee crisis and the rights of migrant workers, immigration is a complex and prominent issue.

Full Fact’s Immigration Hub is the place to get your factchecking on immigration in the UK.

 

Crime

We’ve got factchecks and explainers on police funding, the number of armed police officers, the effectiveness of the Prevent strategy, and how much it costs to keep UK citizens safe.

Go to our Crime Hub for everything else.

 

Education

Here are some factchecks on grammar schools and social mobility, university applications, school funding, free school meals.

Full Fact’s Education Hub has more of the answers.

 

Europe

What will happen with Brexit? What is Hard Brexit? What are the facts on EU immigration to the UK?

Full Fact’s Europe Hub has more of the answers.
