Read Labour's 2017 Manifesto here
After the EU referendum, our country faces major challenges. Risks to the economy and living standards are growing. The public is split.

The Government is in disarray. Ministers have made it clear they have no exit plan and believe 'No deal' might be the preferred outcome. In the EU referendum, a narrow majority voted to leave, but two thirds of Labour supporters backed our call for a Remain vote.

The Conservatives are determined to make working people pay for their mismanagement with new rounds of cuts and tax rises. Labour has the responsibility to give a lead where the Government will not. We need to hold the Government to account, oppose austerity and set out a path to Brexit that will protect jobs and incomes.

Since Jeremy Corbyn was elected leader of our party in 2015, Labour has repeatedly defeated the Government over its attacks on living standards. The 2017 General Election left the Conservatives without a majority. Jeremy Corbyn is the Parliamentary Leader in waiting and our Manifesto shows that there can be a new kind of politics. The need for that different approach now is greater than ever.

Our people need a Labour Government and it is our continued commitment to dedicate our party's activity to that goal.
