A better plan. A better future



1. A Strong Economic Foundation

We will balance the books and cut the deficit every year while securing the future of the NHS. None of our manifesto commitments require additional borrowing.

2. Higher Living Standards For Working Families

We will freeze energy bills until 2017 and give the regulator the power to cut bills this winter. We will ban exploitative zero-hours contracts, raise the minimum wage to £8, and provide 25 hours free childcare.

3. An NHS With Time To Care

We will build an NHS with the time to care: 20,000 more nurses and 8,000 more GPs. We will join up services from home to hospital, and guarantee GP appointments within 48 hours and cancer tests within one week.

4. Controls On Immigration

People who come here won't be able to claim benefits for at least two years, and we will introduce fair rules making it illegal for employers to undercut wages by exploiting workers.

5. A Country Where The Next Generation Can Do Better Than The Last

We will reduce tuition fees to £6,000, guarantee an apprenticeship for every school leaver who gets the basic grades, and ensure smaller class sizes for 5, 6, & 7-year-olds.
