Tories Launch Election Manifesto in Swindon 

 
 
Swindon was the focus of national media attention once again today as the Conservative party launched their new manifesto.
 
Prime Minister David Cameron was at the University Technical College complex in central Swindon with a number of other high ranking cabinet ministers, where he announced his party's pledges should they be re-elected on 07 May.
 
These include:
 
- extending the ability to purchase your home at a discount to housing association tenants
- a 1bn fund for building 400,000 new properties on brownfield sites
- raising the personal allowance for tax to 12,500
- increasing the starting salary for the 40p rate to 50,000
- raising the inheritance tax threshold for family homes to 1m
- an annual 8bn boost for NHS funding
 
You can view the full Manifesto via the link below.
