Greg Hands welcomes Conservative Conference message of security, stability and opportunity

Speaking at the end of Conservative Party Conference in Manchester, Chief Secretary and MP for Chelsea & Fulham said: “We are compassionate Conservatives who are truly on the side of working people – whatever stage of life they are at. While other political parties are in chaos and losing their heads, we are squarely on the common ground. We have shown how we have the drive and the ideas to deliver security, stability and opportunity for the people of Britain.”

Greg, who addressed various fringe and other meetings at Conference, added: “This Conference has gone very well for the Party. We have made a number of important announcements on building more homes, on reforming GP services, on local government devolution, on selling Lloyds Bank shares to the public and in boosting our infrastructure.”

“At the election, we made clear commitments to the British public, and we haven’t wasted a minute in delivering them. The Queen’s Speech contained Bills to deliver 30 hours of free childcare; 3 million new apprenticeships; the extension of Right to Buy; and an EU referendum. The Summer Budget cut taxes for millions of hardworking people and introduced the National Living Wage. But there is still much more to do.”
