David Cameron has promised a "good life" for British workers and families if the Conservative party resume their government after the General Election 2015.

The prime minister announced that he wanted "to finish the job" of rebuilding Britain on behalf of "working people", outlining his pledge to take workers on the minimum wage out of tax and double free childcare to 30 hours a week.

Other key Conservative pledges include extending the right-to-buy scheme for housing association tenants in England, lifting the inheritance tax threshold on family homes to £1m by 2017, no above-inflation rises in rail fares until 2020, an extra £8bn a year for the NHS by 2020 and an EU referendum by 2017.

In response to the Conservative party manifesto, John Cridland, CBI Director-General, said: “The economic recovery is strengthening, but there is still much to do.

“Progress has been made in cutting the deficit over this Parliament, and the Conservative Party’s clear plans to continue the path of deficit reduction are welcome. Business will want clarity over how manifesto commitments will be funded.

“The Conservative manifesto includes a number of pro-growth measures, such as investing in infrastructure, creating a competitive tax environment, and boosting skills. And business is clear: our membership of a reformed European Union is also critical to our economic future.”
