The Office for Budget Responsibility (OBR) have said that Britain is on track to run a budget surplus by 2018; it has also criticised the last Labour Government’s spending record.
As the OBR has confirmed, the last Labour Government left a devastating economic legacy.
The Conservatives have a long-term economic plan to secure a better future for Britain. We know that there is still work to do, but we have already seen the deficit cut by more than a third, the creation of 1.8 million jobs and over 1.8 million new apprenticeships.
Labour haven’t changed and would put that all at risk with more spending, more borrowing and higher taxes. Our plan is building a stronger, more competitive economy that will bring security and peace of mind for generations to come.
