At 73.7% our employment rate has never been higher. We are moving further towards the goal of full employment that we set out in our manifesto.

Every person who gets a job is another person in our country with the security of a regular pay and the stability that comes with work.

Not only are more people in work than ever before, wages are rising faster than inflation. That means more money to spend as you choose, so that you can provide for you and your family.

But we cannot rest. With over 700,000 job vacancies, we have an opportunity to help unemployed people back into work. And we must guarantee our economy creates new jobs by ensuring we have a government that lives within its means and our economic recovery is sustained.

New employment statistics show that unemployment has fallen and pay packets are rising – meaning greater economic security for working people.

It is great news that Britain’s economic plan continues to create jobs and increase pay.

We’ve got the highest rate of employment in our history, and real terms pay rising strongly. But with recent data showing our trading partners’ growth is slowing we must not be complacent.

All of this progress will be at risk unless we carry on with our plan to build a resilient economy, delivering the economic security of a country that lives within its means.

We want to give more families the chance to own their own home. That is why we’re committed to delivering more homes that people can truly afford by changing the current planning rules to allow the building of more Starter Homes - homes that you can own, not just rent.

In short we want to help Generation Rent move to Generation Buy.

Starter Homes are only a part of the Conservative plan to further the dream of home ownership.We will work with local government to deliver one million new homes by 2020.

We will extend the Right to Buy to all housing association tenants. This will mean that over a million more families will be able to buy their house at a discount.

We will continue with the Help to Buy scheme up to 2020, so that those who work hard and save can get onto the housing ladder with a lower deposit.

And from December this year first time buyers will be supported in saving for that deposit through the new Help to Buy ISA. This will mean that if a first time buyer saves up to £12,000, we’ll give them an extra £3,000 for a deposit on a house.

Labour are a threat to our national security, our economic security and your family’s security.

They would:

  • Weaken our defences through scrapping Trident, leaving NATO and abolishing our Armed Forces;
  • Drive up the cost of living by printing money and borrowing more; and
  • Put up taxes on jobs, investment and earnings.

These policies that the Labour Party voted for in the recent leadership election show that they would put Britain’s future security at risk.

Labour are now a serious threat to Britain's economic security - with a plan that includes higher taxes on working people, printing money and spending even more than last time.

Today, Labour's leader committed Labour ‘to remove the whole idea of the benefit cap altogether’.

Please SHARE this graphic to let everyone know that while the Conservatives have capped benefits so that it always pays to work, Labour would scrap the benefit cap altogether.

Labour and their new leader are a serious risk to our nation’s security.

This is a very serious moment for our country – only the Conservatives will continue to deliver stability, security and opportunity.

Labour are now a serious risk to our economy’s security and your family’s security.

Whether it’s raising taxes on jobs and earnings, racking up more debt or driving up the cost of living by printing money – Jeremy Corbyn’s Labour Party will hurt working people.

SHARE this post to let people know that our long-term economic plan is working.

A Conservative Party analysis reveals that Labour’s leadership candidates would cost working families at least £1,000 in higher debt and taxes.

The election delivered a clear verdict – the party that left a note saying there was no money left still couldn’t be trusted with the nation’s economy. But Labour haven’t learnt. All four leadership candidates have offered more of the same: more welfare, more borrowing and more taxes – exactly what got us into a mess in the first place.

It would be hardworking families who end up paying the price for these unfunded promises. The commitments made during this contest alone would cost every working family at least £1,000 in higher debt and taxes. This rise in debt and taxes would mean less money in working people’s pay packets, fewer jobs and a weaker economy.

The British people have worked too hard to clear up the mess Labour left behind to go through all that again and will conclude that – whoever ends up taking charge – Labour haven’t changed.

They still have no plan for the economy, just the same old policies that left the country in such a mess the last time around. Working people would pay for it.
