The Tories' Claims Don't Add Up!
They're the ones with questions to answer.
The Tories think that they are turning attention onto Labour's spending plans but all they are really highlighting is that their own number do not add up:
- They already have more than £8 billion of unfunded commitments in just two of their policies - on tax cuts and the NHS - and have pledged support for other multi-million pound policies without saying where the money is coming from.
- They have a history throughout this Parliament of producing dossiers on Labour's spending plans based on shoddy claims and dodgy numbers which have collapsed under scrutiny. This one isn't any different.
The truth is that Labour is the only party that is committed to having no unfunded spending commitments in our manifesto.
