Prime Minister Theresa May has unveiled the Conservative Manifesto in a conference in West Yorkshire today, ahead of June 8th's General Election.
The manifesto has addressed the key five issues the Conservative Party believes are facing the country today, namely:
- The need for a strong economy
- Brexit and a changing world
- Social Divisions
- A changing society and increase in elderly people
- Evolving technology and the issues this poses
Key policies within the manifesto include an extra £8bn investment into the NHS, an extra £4bn invested into schools by 2020, and a cut to immigration numbers down to below 100,000.
Speaking at the manifesto unveiling today, Theresa May said: "This election is the most important this country has faced in my lifetime. Our future prosperity, our place in the world, our standard of living, and the opportunities we want for our children - and our children's children - all depend on getting the next five years right.
If we fail, the consequences for Britain and for the economic security of ordinary, working people across this country will be significant. If we succeed, the opportunities ahead of us are great."
The full manifesto is available online to read here. The General Election will take place nationwide on June 8th.
