How do Tory and Labour financial election pledges stack up?
By , 5 Jun 17
With only a few days to go until the results of the 2017 snap UK election are revealed, we looked at the Tory and Labour party manifestos to see how their pledges on business, tax and pensions stacked up.
Labour go a step further in their manifesto with a pledge to keep the triple lock in place throughout the next parliament, guaranteeing a minimum increase in pensions of 2.5% until 2022.
Added to this was a promise that pensioners would keep both the winter fuel allowance and their free bus passes under a Labour government.
The party has also promised compensation for women born in the 1950s who believe their state pension age was changed without fair notice.
