What Labour will do for you


Labour's manifesto for the next election is taking shape - here are some of the highlights so far. 

  • Freeze gas and electric bills until 2017 and make the energy market work for consumers

  • Stop rip off rent rises and bring in new longer term predictable tenancies 

  • Cut income tax with a 10p starting rate, and restore the 50p top rate of tax for millionaires

  • Back small businesses by cutting business rates and reforming bank lending

  • Helping working parents with 25 hours of free childcare for three-and-four year olds

  • Strong migrant labour undercutting wages by banning recruitment agencies that only hire foreign workers

  • A job guarantee for the young unemployed and more apprenticeships 

  • Make work pay by strengthening the Minimum Wage and providing tax breaks to firms that boost pay through the Living Wage

  • Get 200,000 homes built a year by 2020

  • Ban exploitative zero-hour contracts
