Theresa May's Speech to the Conservative Party Conference

At the Conservative Party Conference in Manchester this afternoon, the Prime Minister set out what the Government is doing to build a country that works for everyone. She was clear that we will continue to take a balanced approach to the economy, dealing with our debts whilst also investing in public services – making our country a fairer place to live and work.

Therese said: "We will increase the affordable housing budget by £2bn to more than £9bn – allowing more homes to be built for social rent; put a price cap on energy bills by publishing a draft Bill in Parliament next week and on top of freezing maximum tuition fee rates the amount graduates can earn before they start repaying their fees will rise to £25,000.

The Prime Minister also launched an independent review of the Mental Health Act to make it fit for the 21st Century and has committed to an opt-out rather than opt-in system for organ donation – which will save hundreds of lives.

She also reiterated our absolute commitment to get the best Brexit deal for Britain – delivering control over our borders, laws and money whilst maintaining the greatest possible access to European markets."
