PETER LILLEY will announce today the Conservative Party is appointing more than a dozen groups to plan more right-wing policies for the next general election manifesto.

The deputy leader of the Tory party, who is charge of policy, will tell supporters that MPs, academics, and other party members will work on ideas for welfare, education, health, law and order and the economy. They are expected to look at radical policies with a right-wing edge, including supplementing NHS spending from taxes by more people paying for their healthcare through insurance or private prescriptions.The research will show what kind of party William Hague intends to lead against Tony Blair's "third way".
