The Conservatives say they are the party of business. They say they are the party of responsibility. The government has for years said it wants to help businesses to better support the health of their workforce.

If the government means what it says, it should resist the temptation to raise IPT even further. 

Let’s not make things worse. Instead, let's support businesses to really invest in the thing that makes them thrive – their people.
