Tories vow to tighten immigration rules
The Tories have also promised to overhaul social care funding in a manifesto Theresa May said would "deliver for mainstream Britain".
The pledge to reduce migration to below 100,000 - which was in the 2010 and 2015 Tory manifestos - has never been met.
Many Britons who voted a year ago to leave the European Union were motivated by a desire to control immigration, which has soared as the EU has expanded.
Workers rights have emerged as a major point of conflict in Brexit, with German Chancellor Angela Merkel warning Britain that an end to freedom of movement for European Union citizens "will have its price". She said leaving the European Union offers the chance to build "stronger, fairer, more prosperous Britain" based on "a new contract between government and people". It sets no date by which Britain will reach the goal.
May, whose Conservatives are on target for an overwhelming victory in the June 8 election, launched her party manifesto in Yorkshire on Thursday (Friday NZ Time).
On Thursday the Conservatives acknowledged the need for councils to do more to boost available stock. But many economists say the "tens of thousands" target is arbitrary and could prevent companies recruiting workers with essential skills.
She added: "Margaret Thatcher was a Conservative, I am a Conservative, this is a Conservative manifesto". "We reject the cult of selfish individualism".
May's economic vision outlined in the manifesto includes ideas more reminiscent of the center-left Labour Party than traditional Conservative policies.

Executive pay packages will be subject to annual votes by shareholders and listed companies will have to publish the ratio of executive pay to "broader United Kingdom workforce" pay in a concession to widespread public anger over high salaries for big business bosses. "There is good, solid Conservatism that puts the interests of the country and the interests of ordinary working people at the heart of everything we do in government". The amount Britain will be asked to pay is expected to be one of the first flashpoints in the exit talks.
To do that, May said she will remove some financial protections for pensioners - generally a group politicians are loath to alienate due to their high voter-turnout rates.
She (Munich: SOQ.MU - news) ultimately approved the deal but said her government would take a more cautious approach over similar foreign investments in the future.
May has cast the Brexit vote as a "quiet revolution" that exposed the failings of modern Britain in a way that can no longer be ignored by a leader who looks back to Thatcher, Winston Churchill and Clement Attlee for inspiration.
May will also keep the government's pledge to cut corporation tax to 17 percent by 2020, the Telegraph said.
But there are signs that Brexit could already be biting the economy, such as quickening inflation.

May will commit to erasing the country's budget deficit by the middle of the next decade, allowing for greater borrowing to support the economy in the run-up to Brexit, the Telegraph newspaper reported.
