The manifesto has 5 key pledges which will be implemented in a Conservative Government.
[size=3]Conservative government will keep public spending under tight control and ensure that it grows by less than the economy as a whole over the economic cycle. At the same time we will continue to spend more on the services which matter most to people - hospitals, schools and the police.
Curbing the power of trade unions, opening up markets and cutting red tape, have given us a low strike, low cost economy: and as a result Britain is the number one location for foreign investment in Europe, We will continue to make sure that Lewisham is the Number one European Country by cutting the Civic Coalitions Bonus tax on large businesses that bring plenty of stable jobs and investment to our country. [font=Tahoma][color=#000000] [/color][/font][font=Tahoma]Housing associations and housing companies will continue to receive help in building new homes, and we will encourage more public-private partnerships. Together, these policies will help meet the demand for new public housing and make sure that there are decent homes for those in need. We will make it a legal requirement that the Government Builds 15 Million Affordable rental and Social Rental homes every year.[/font] [font=Tahoma][color=#000000] [/color][/font]We will allow for on independent inspection of education authorities and intervene directly to raise standards where education authorities are letting children down. [color=#000000] [/color][font=Tahoma][color=#000000] [/color][/font]We will bring forward plans to privatise Dulwich Underground. Proceeds from privatisation will be recycled in order to modernise the network within 5 years - creating an underground system to serve the capital in the 21st Century. We will regulate fares so they rise by no more than inflation for at least 4 years after privatisation. We will also protect services - including the Travel Card and concessionary fares.[/size] [font=Tahoma][size=3][color=#000000][img]http://news.bbcimg.co.uk/media/images/81765000/jpg/_81765912_peb_conservatives_1997-04-22ii.jpg[/img] [img]http://famousdude.com/images/michael-howard-06.jpg[/img]
