“Labours fully costed manifesto is the most radical, hopeful, people-focused vision for Britain in modern times.
Our manifesto offers the chance of real change for every generation and every community.
When Labour wins, the nurse wins, the pensioner wins, the student wins, the office worker wins, the engineer wins. We all win.
The future is ours to make. It’s time for real change – for the many, not the few. Together, we can deliver it.”

Labour will deliver a new social house building programme of more than a million homes over a decade.
