"The British people are united in their resolve that terror will not prevail. It will not prevent us going about our daily lives or derail our democratic process," Corbyn said in a statement.
"Resuming democratic debate and campaigning is an essential mark of the country's determination to defend our democracy and the unity that the terrorist have sought to attack," he said.
A Conservative Party spokesman told AFP on Wednesday: (May 24) "We will resume local campaigning tomorrow ... and national campaigning on Friday". ■
