Which party to vote for – depending on your age

This is a six-part series on what each of the political parties has promised for different age groups in this general election. 

It used to be that your social class dictated how you vote. Now it is your age. Around half of those over the age of 60 voted Conservative in 2017, while almost the same proportion of under-29s voted the opposite way, for Labour, according to polling agency YouGov.

This year many of the parties have made big promises hoping to garner support from specific groups. With the 2019 general election quickly turning into the generational election, Telegraph Money took a look at what has been pledged for those in their 20s, 30s, 40s, 50s, 60s and 70s. 

Read our six-part series to find out what each party’s policies would mean for you. Here is a round-up of the key issues at stake for each generation.
