A good record on managing the economy

Now more than ever, we need a majority Conservative government to break the Brexit deadlock and focus on domestic issues that need resolving.

“We need a majority Conservative government to break the Brexit deadlock and focus on domestic issues

Thanks to the Conservative Government’s careful management over the past decade, our economy is growing and now we can afford to invest properly in the public’s priorities. This year alone the Government announced £3.5 billion funding for local services in the Spending Round.

To provide the homes people need, the Government scrapped the housing revenue borrowing cap last year – a longstanding ‘ask’ of the LGA. The Affordable Homes Programme has been increased by £2 billion and the Government continues to support Help to Buy to make home ownership a reality for more people.

The Government is increasing school funding by £14 billion to give children the best start in life, and making our streets safer by recruiting more than 20,000 police officers.

The 12 December election is likely to be one of the most important in British history, and Conservative councillors will be working hard to return a majority Conservative government.

I would also like to extend my best wishes to those Conservative councillors who are standing as candidates for Parliament.
