Key policies from Conservatives’ election manifesto launch

Rishi Sunak launched the Conservative Party’s general election manifesto on Tuesday, 11 June.

The prime minister put tax cuts and help for first-time buyers at the heart of his pledges, with a flagship policy of cutting national insurance by a further 2p.

The latter promise has been criticised by Labour, with shadow health secretary Wes Streeting saying Mr Sunak is “taking people for fools” with the cut.

Here, The Independent takes a look at the key promises announced in today’s launch.
