The Prime Minister has pledged to create two million additional jobs in the next parliament if the Conservatives return to power after the election.

In an interview with the Daily Mail, David Cameron said the target could be achieved through measures including competitive tax rates, investment in infrastructure and government assistance to businesses.

Mr Cameron said: “Vote Conservative and finish what we have begun: with two million more jobs in the next five years.

"We are the jobs party - and over the next month, we will be fighting for every man and woman who wants to work and earn a wage."
