Why the Chancellor’s 2015 Budget works for a better future

The Conservatives in government have a long-term plan that is working – building a healthier economy and securing a better future for Britain.

  • A better future for our country, with a growing economy
  • More people with the chance to get on in life, with record job numbers
  • More security for the long-term, with the deficit down and our national debt starting to fall as a share of the economy

But we now face a critical choice. We can keep on working through the long-term economic plan that is delivering a better future for you, your family and Britain. Or we can return to the chaos of the past.

With this Budget, Conservatives choose to secure a better future.

  • Cutting income taxes for 27 million hardworking people, and cancelling Labour’s planned rise in fuel duty
  • A new Help to Buy ISA for first time buyers – so if you save up to £12,000 towards a deposit on a home, the government will contribute up to £3,000
  • Helping savers with a new Personal Savings Allowance, abolishing savings tax altogether for 17 million people to create tax free banking
  • Committing to run a budget surplus and keep our debt share falling
  • Backing business and skills that will create full employment, and supporting pubs and brewers by cutting tax on beer and cider
  • Investing across the UK for a truly national recovery

These changes are all part of the Conservative long-term economic plan, and it’s critical we keep working through it.

That’s the simple choice voters face on May 7th: between the Conservatives, with a long-term economic plan that is working, or Labour, propped up by the SNP, who offer the chaos of the past.
