Ed Miliband's speech to Labour conference - #Lab14


In his conference speech yesterday Ed Miliband set out Labour's plan for Britain's future.

Ed set out six national goals to improve Britain over the next ten years:

1. Giving all young people a shot in life: Ensure as many school-leavers go on to apprenticeships as go to university.

2. Tackling the cost-of-living crisis: Help working families share fairly in the wealth of our country so, when the economy grows, the wages of everyday working people grow at the same rate.

3. Restoring the dream of home ownership: Meet demand for new homes for the first time in half a century – doubling the number of first-time buyers getting on to the housing ladder each year.

4. Tackling low wages: Halve the number of people on low pay in our country, changing the lives of over two million people.

5. Securing the future: Create one million more high-tech jobs by securing the UK’s position as a world leader in green industries.

6. Saving our NHS: Build a world-class, 21st century health and care service.

The Tories keep repeating their 'long term economic plan' sound bite but have little to say about what it means for people in Stockton South. This is Labour's plan for building a better future for you and your family.

After the speech I spoke to Sunday Politics about the NHS announcements Ed made and how they will benefit areas like Stockton South. You can read more about the proposals here.
