LONDON, April 23 (Reuters) - Britain’s ruling Conservative Party’s election manifesto will focus on Brexit and domestic concerns, such as strengthening the economy and putting a cap on energy prices, Work and Pensions minister Damian Green said on Sunday.

“The manifesto will deal with two big issues facing the country - one obviously is the Brexit negotiations ... but the other half, which is equally important, is indeed the domestic agenda,” he told ITV’s Peston on Sunday programme.

“There will be a lot about energy policy in the manifesto ... I think that people feel that some of the big energy companies have taken advantage of them with the tariffs.” (Reporting by Elizabeth Piper. Editing by Jane Merriman and Guy Faulconbridge)
