Keir Starmer, leader of the Labour Party has set out the first steps for change that a newly elected Labour government would take:

Step 1: Deliver economic stability with tough spending rules, so we can grow our economy and keep taxes, inflation and mortgages as low as possible.

Step 2: Cut NHS waiting times with 40,000 more appointments each week, during evenings and weekends, paid for by cracking down on tax avoidance and non-dom loopholes.

Step 3: Launch a new Border Security Command with hundreds of new specialist investigators and use counter-terror powers to smash the criminal boat gangs.

Step 4: Set up Great British Energy, a publicly-owned clean power company, to cut bills for good and boost energy security, paid for by a windfall tax on oil and gas giants.

Step 5: Crack down on antisocial behaviour, with more neighbourhood police paid for by ending wasteful contracts, tough new penalties for offenders, and a new network of youth hubs.

Step 6: Recruit 6,500 new teachers in key subjects to set children up for life, work and the future, paid for by ending tax breaks for private schools.

Last year, Keir set out Labour’s national missions. The missions that will guide our Labour government as we turn the page on 14 years of Tory chaos.

These missions are ambitious. And ambitions start with first steps.

Everything we’ve set out today is fully costed and deliverable, because this changed Labour Party is back in the service of working people.

Tory decline is not inevitable. Politics can make a difference. We can stop the chaos, turn the page, and choose a better future for Britain.

This year, we will take this message to every doorstep in this country:

Our mission-driven Labour government will deliver the change that you and your family deserve.

And starting with these first steps, we can get Britain’s future back.
