Lib Dems launch 5 key policies to Change Britain’s Future

by Steve Beasant on 21 May, 2017

Liberal Democrats have launched their Manifesto for the General Election which includes 5 key policies to Change Britain’s Future for the better.

  1. NHS
  • The Liberal Democrats will introduce a 1p rise on the basic, higher, additional and dividend rates of income tax raising around £6bn per year, which will be ring-fenced for spending on NHS, care services and public health.
  •  This would mean £24million of extra funding for the NHS in North East Lincolnshire.
  1. Schools
  •  The Liberal Democrats will invest nearly £7bn in our schools and colleges over the next parliament, to ensure no school, and no child loses out.
  • This would mean £34,447,388 of extra funding for schools in North East Lincolnshire.
  1. Police
  • The Liberal Democrats will invest an extra £300m a year into policing to reverse the recent rise in violent crime and boost community policing.
  • This would mean £4,470,000 of extra funding for Humberside Police Force.
  1. Economy
  • We will build an Economy that works for the long term: prosperous, green, and fair.
  • The Liberal Democrats will launch a £100bn package of infrastructure investment to help build 300,000 homes a year, improve road and rail links and install fibre-optic broadband across the UK.
  • We will create a new ‘start-up allowance’ to help budding entrepreneurs, aim to double the number of businesses which hire apprentices and support investment in renewable energy
  1. Brexit
  • The Liberal Democrats will give the people a chance to change Britain’s future by holding a referendum on the final Brexit deal with the option to remain.
