    UK Prime Minister Boris Johnson's election promise is a "triple tax lock" for the next five years, which means the Conservatives will not increase income tax, national insurance tax and value-added tax (VAT).

    The Conservative Party's manifesto also promises to get the Brexit Withdrawal Agreement back for a parliamentary vote before December 25.
