What the papers say – November 2
Election promises and a stop to a controversial mining practice are among the stories on Saturday’s front pages.
Pledges ahead of the General Election and a moratorium on fracking lead the papers on Saturday.
The Daily Telegraph reports that the Conservatives have promised an election tax cut, something foreshadowed by Boris Johnson during his campaign to be Prime Minister.
Any vote by the electorate which is not for the Tories will result in Jeremy Corbyn, the Daily Express says Mr Johnson has warned.
