North Warwickshire & Bedworth Candidate Craig Tracey has welcomed proposals to reduce taxes for 30 million people, increase spending on the NHS and open GP surgeries 7 days a week, following the Conservative Party Conference in Birmingham.
Craig, who lives near Polesworth, will be standing for the Conservative Party in next year’s general election said:
“This was a really positive Party Conference in Birmingham, in which we have set out a clear economic plan that will secure Britain’s future. This plan will benefit families in North Warwickshire & Bedworth. Under a future Conservative Government the minimum wage will rise and anyone earning £12,500 or less a year will not have to pay any tax whatsoever. We are putting fairness back into the tax system by lifting the 40p threshold to £50,000 to help hardworking families. Local people will also be able to access their GPs for 7 days a week under our plans, while hospitals like the George Eliot will see real increases in its spending. We have been able announce this because we are managing the economy – you cannot support the NHS without a strong economy.”
The local candidate travelled to Birmingham just days after getting married to partner Karen, who he met in Birchmoor. Craig said:
“We had a wonderful time in Scotland, but our honeymoon was 20 miles from home at conference in Birmingham! Getting married then standing for election for local people means this is a massive year and I am really looking forward to the campaign ahead.”
Craig will be fighting the key parliamentary seat of North Warwickshire in May next year, he concluded:
“I think what the Party Conferences have shown is that there is now a clear choice between Labour and the Conservatives; and between Ed Miliband & David Cameron. The Conservatives have had to make difficult decisions but our economy is now on the right track and that is why we will cut local people’s taxes.”
