And we back the Conservative pledges • • • • •
Reform of the welfare state - it is not right that people can remain at home on more bene its than people who work. However, we will always stand up for those who genuinely need help. We back the Referendum on our future within the EU. We were the irst County Council to call on Brussels to tighten its belt and take less of your money. We always believe in value for money, cutting waste and red tape, and keeping tax low. We support tougher immigration rules and stopping bogus visa applications
