  • Freeze gas and electricity bills until 2017, as we reform the broken energy market to prevent customers being ripped off

  • Get the next generation into work, with expanded apprenticeships and a compulsory jobs guarantee for young people unemployed for a year or more – with a real paid job they’ll have to take or lose benefits

  • Introduce a lower 10p starting rate of tax to help make work pay and cut taxes for 24 million working people on middle and lower incomes – funded by a mansion tax on homes worth over £2 million

  • End the abuse of zero hour contracts and strengthen the minimum wage
