CONSERVATIVE PARTY CONFERENCE DAY TWO

We need a Government that delivers serious reform and builds a country that works for everyone, and not just the privileged few. And that starts with our economy – a Britain that remains open for business, and makes sure that everyone can share in the country’s wealth.

LOWERING THE CAP ON BENEFITS

A new benefit cap has now come in to effect, meaning the total amount workless households can receive in benefits will be limited to £20,000 across the UK or £23,000 within Greater London. This is fair to the taxpayers who pay for it and fair to those who need it.

350,000 MORE PEOPLE IN WORK

Between June and September this year unemployment fell by 37,000 and since last year 350,000 more people now have a full time job. That’s 350,000 more people with the security of work, a regular income and better able to provide for themselves and their family. SHARE to let friends know.
