Lib Dems launch manifesto plan to fund more nurses, teachers and police in Woking

by willforster on 18 May, 2017

The Lib Dems have launched our manifesto plans yesterday for a brighter future, with pledges to reverse Conservative cuts and increase funding for the NHS, schools and police.

The Party’s landmark policy would give the people the final say on the Brexit deal which would include the option to remain in the EU.

The Lib Dems would put a penny on income tax for health and care would raise £124 million for the NHS in Surrey, enough to fund 452 more nurses.  An additional £38,135,022 of funding for Surrey County Council schools paid for in part by reversing Conservative cuts to corporation tax, would be enough to pay for 210 more teachers. Meanwhile an additional £3.6 million funding for Surrey Police would pay for 73 more officers, helping to cut crime and ensure a stronger police presence in the area.

Other key policies in the Lib Dems manifesto include plans for a £100 billion infrastructure fund to build more homes, improve road and rail links and install fibre-optic broadband across the country.

The Lib Dems will also give the people a chance to change Britain’s future by holding a referendum on the final Brexit deal, with the option to remain.

I know these plans would build a brighter future for people in Woking and reverse Conservative cuts to our schools, hospitals and police.  We want to build a fairer Britain, with good schools and hospitals, a clean environment and an innovative economy.

You do not have to accept Theresa May and Nigel Farage’s cold, mean-spirited vision of Britain.  The Lib Dems and I will stand up to a bad Brexit deal that will cost jobs and put up prices and give you the final say.

As your Lib Dem MP, I will fight for a better deal on Europe, more money for the NHS and schools and a brighter future for Woking.
