As the 2017 General Election campaign reaches its climactic moments, it's essential to keep abreast of policy pledges across the party spectrum that could impact your professional priorities.
To help you stay up to speed with what's on the agenda in your sector, DeHavilland's expert Monitoring Consultants have produced a series of special election-focused briefings.
Each briefing features original analysis, a breakdown of policy pledges from the party manifestos, and five key PPCs to watch out for.
