Manifesto

What Conservatives have done since 2010

We cut the deficit by a half as a share of national income, so the future looks more secure.

We cut income tax cut for over 27 million people, so taxpayers keep more of the money they earn.

We capped benefits to reward work.

Nearly 2 million more people are in employment, 1,000 jobs being created a day, with the security of a regular wage and the chance to get on.

We increased the state pension by £950, so older people can enjoy a more dignified retirement.

A million more pupils are in good and outstanding schools, where they can learn the skills they need to succeed.

Over 88,000 families own their own home thanks to our Help to Buy, most of them first time buyers.

What Conservatives will do by 2020

We will continue to increase spending on the NHS, provide 7-day a week access to your GP and deliver a truly 7-day NHS.

We will maintain the amount of money that follows each child into school, ensure there is a good primary school place available for every child and lift the cap on university places.

We will create 3 million new apprenticeships; take everyone earning less than £12,500 out of income tax and pass a law to ensure we have a tax-free minimum wage in this country; and continue to create a fairer welfare system where benefits are capped to the level that makes work pay.

We will extend the Right to Buy to Housing Association tenants, build 200,000 new Starter Homes and provide 30 hours of free childcare to working parents of 3 and 4 year-olds.

We will not raise VAT, National Insurance contributions or income tax but we will raise the 40p income tax threshold to £50,000 and take the family home out of tax by increasing the effective Inheritance Tax threshold for married couples and civil partners to £1 million.

We will continue to increase the Basic State Pension by at least 2.5 percent through the triple lock, give you the freedom to use your pension savings as you want and pass them on tax-free and we will cap the amount you can be charged for your residential care.

We will secure a better future for you, your family and Britain.
