Reducing the Deficit
The Conservatives are reducing the deficit to secure a stronger economy and a better future for Britain.
By taking difficult decisions, we've reduced the deficit by more than a third since 2010. We're safeguarding our economy for the long term so future generations aren't left to clear up the mess.
Dealing with the deficit is essential to keep mortgage rates low for hardworking families - helping them to be more financially secure.
Only by working through our long-term economic plan and continuing to reduce the deficit can we build a stronger, more competitive economy.
That's why we're taking difficult decisions now - because the alternative is to burden our children with more debt and put the recovery at risk.
Same Old Labour
In government, Labour racked up the biggest budget deficit in our peacetime history.
Now they want to do it all over again with more spending, more borrowing and more taxes, which would wreck the economy and put the recovery at risk.
