  • Introduce a windfall tax on oil and gas companies.
  • Bring the ‘Big Six’ energy companies into public ownership.
  • Bring Royal Mail back into public ownership.
  • Bring railways back into public ownership.

  • Create a National Care Service, with free personal care for over 65s.
  • Create a National Education Service, with six years of free adult education and no university tuition fees.
