The good

Clear commitment to deficit reduction. Absolutely essential to have a stable basis for business and economic growth.

Commitment to take people earning under £10,000 out of tax. A positive incentive to move from benefits into work.

Cuts in company taxes. Vital if the UK is to remain competitive against low-tax countries.
