Manifesto costings

The manifesto is all fully costed:

After years of Conservative chaos and neglect, there is no doubt that our NHS, social care, schools and other public services desperately need more investment. GPs are overstretched, hospitals are overcrowded and school buildings are crumbling.

At the same time, families and pensioners are struggling in the face of a cost-of-living crisis. The Conservatives have already put up their taxes by freezing income tax thresholds. It would be wrong to ask them to pay more to clear up the Conservatives’ mess.

That’s why we will fund our fair deal without raising income tax, national insurance contributions or VAT. Instead, we will focus on tax changes that make the system fairer – such as reversing the Conservatives’ tax cuts for the big banks and imposing a proper windfall tax on the super-profits of oil and gas companies.
