PM: Budget shows what Tories can do alone

By David Hughes

The radical Budget delivered by George Osborne shows what the Conservatives can do "freed from the constraints of coalition", David Cameron will tell party activists.

The Prime Minister will address the Conservative Party's National Convention and claim the combination of welfare cuts and reduced income and corporation taxes had not been possible during the years sharing power with the Liberal Democrats.

Mr Cameron will claim that the measures have shown the Tories to be the "real party for working people".

He will tell the gathering in London: "When I said before the election that the Conservatives would be the real party for working people I was deadly serious. "Legislating for more childcare, helping people buy their housing association home and now, in the Budget, reducing income tax and introducing the national living wage - giving hard-working people a pay rise and a tax cut.

"I have always been a One Nation Conservative - and now, freed from the constraints of coalition, we can demonstrate what that can really do for the country."
