The Conservatives’ 2015 manifesto is a comprehensive blueprint, outlining the party’s aspirations for a brighter future for Britain. Key pledges include eliminating the deficit and running a surplus by 2018, no tax on the minimum wage, and increasing the personal allowance to £12,500. The manifesto also promises to create two million more jobs, three million more apprenticeships, and to double free childcare for working parents of three and four-year-olds.

On housing, the manifesto sets an ambitious target of building 200,000 starter homes exclusively for first-time buyers under 40. It also pledges to extend the Right to Buy scheme to housing association tenants.

On education, it promises a place for all pupils in a good primary school, with an emphasis on free schools. The manifesto also pledges to protect the schools budget and create more free schools.

The NHS is another key area, with the manifesto pledging an additional £8 billion per year by 2020. Immigration is addressed with a pledge to keep the target of reducing net migration to tens of thousands, despite missing this target in the last parliament.

Finally, the manifesto pledges to hold an in-out referendum on Britain’s membership of the EU by 2020, and to renegotiate Britain’s relationship with the EU. There is also a commitment to maintain the size of the regular armed forces.
