Labour’s pledge on tax credits

Labour is committing to inflation increases in all tax credits throughout the next parliament. It says that will be paid for from the existing welfare budget which, Labour says, it can do as it is not focusing cuts on welfare like the Tories.

The media section of Labour’s manifesto┬áhas this line: “No one media owner should be allowed to exert undue influence…” That’ll keep up poor relations with certain media outlets.

It also, incidentally, commits to keeping Channel 4 in the public sector.
