1994 Budget And Conservative Party Election Promises

EDM number 177 in 1994-95, proposed by Paul Tyler on 01/12/1994.

That this House notes the new round of Conservative pre-election promises broken in the 1994 Budget and recalls in particular the Prime Minister's promise not to extend the scope of VAT when the Budget increases VAT on domestic fuel, the commitment in the Conservative 1992 Manifesto to keep firm control over public spending when both total spending and the PSBR have increased in real terms since the general election, the Prime Minister's pledge to nourish the education service when education spending is forecast to fall in real terms in both 1995-96 and 1996-97, the manifesto promise to expand higher education and training when numbers in higher education are frozen, the manifesto promise to year on year increase the real resources committed to the National Health Service when health spending is set to fall in real terms in both 1995-96 and 1996-97 and the manifesto promise to give the police the support and resources they need when no chief constables' requests for more officers in 1994-95 were met and Budget funding will allow no increase in police numbers.

This motion has been signed by a total of 11 MPs.
