  1. Broadband investment

    How we're making sure homes and businesses in the UK can access fast and reliable broadband services.

  2. UK economic growth

    How the government is removing barriers to growth so the UK can compete in a rapidly changing global economy.

  3. Deficit reduction

    Reducing the deficit - the gap between what we spend and raise in taxes – is central to the government’s economic plans. We also want to correct the imbalance between the public and private sectors that built up in the decade before the financial crisis began.

  4. Personal tax reform

    How the government is reforming the tax system to help improve the state of the public finances, promote economic growth and reward those who work and support families.

  5. Tourism

    We are funding campaigns to inspire more people to travel in the UK, and working with the tourism industry to make it easier for it to grow.
