Labour's 5 point plan for jobs & growth

A ready-reckoner

A £2 billion tax on bank bonuses to fund a real jobs guarantee

for all young people out of work for a year and build 25,000 more affordable homes.
 

Bringing forward long-term investment projects

schools, roads and transport - to get people back to work and strengthen our economy for the future.
 

Reversing the Tory-led Government's damaging VAT rise

now for a temporary period - a £450 boost for a couple with children - immediate help for our high streets and for struggling families and pensioners.
 

A one year cut in VAT to 5% on home improvements,

repairs and maintenance - to help homeowners and small businesses.
 

A one year national insurance tax break

for every small firm which takes on extra workers - helping small businesses to grow and create jobs.
