Labour candidate Tulip Siddiq faces a final Q&A before today's general election in Hampstead and Kilburn.

What’s the first thing you’d do if you were elected? I would call my family - I’d want to be the one to deliver the news!

If you were in government, what would be the first policy you’d like to introduce? My top priority is the NHS and I want to ensure we fund the NHS properly so that it serves everyone.

If you don’t get elected, what will you do? I’ll go see my mum. She has a wonderful ability to provide perspective on situations and she lives outside the constituency!

The likely outcome is a coalition – what would be your favoured option? I have spent a lot of time with the other candidates and found the most shared values with Rebecca from the Green Party. My focus is on our area, where it is a straight race between Labour and the Tories.

What do you think is the most likely outcome of the election? If a coalition, between which parties? I’m still hoping for a Labour majority so we can form a Labour government.

Who do you think will win in Hampstead and Kilburn? I am keeping my fingers crossed that people will pick me. I hope people recognise that this is my home and where I want to represent in parliament.

Where will you be going on election night to celebrate/drown your sorrows? The Good Ship on Kilburn High Road.

What has been your favourite memory from the campaign? Small kindnesses from constituents: seeing a row of Labour window posters, free ice creams and people letting me use their loo!
