Lib Dem Manifesto 2015

April 23, 2015 2:16 PM

The Liberal Democrat Manifesto was published on 15th April. It is a detailed and credible plan to build both a Stronger Economy and a Fairer Society.

The 5 key priorities are spelt out on the front page: Lib Dem Manifesto 2015

  1. Prosperity for all: Balance the budget fairly and invest to build a high-skill, low-carbon economy
  2. Opportunity for every child: Guarantee education funding from nursery to 19 and qualified teachers in every class.
  3. Fair taxes: Increase the tax threshold to £12500 and introduce a Mansion tax for properties over £2million
  4. Quality Healthcare for all with a fully funded extra £8bn for our NHS by 2020 and guarantee equal care for mental health.
  5. Our environment protected: Protect nature and fight climate change with five green laws.

Opportunity For All is at the Heart of the Liberal Democrat Manifesto

We will build a Stronger Economy and a Fairer Society so that everyone has the opportunity to prosper:

Opportunity for Children: with investment in education from nursery to 19 and qualified teachers in every classroom.

Opportunity for Young People: with more apprenticeships, discounted bus travel, a massive increase in housebuilding and support to rent or own their own home through the innovative Help to Rent and Rent to Own schemes.

Opportunity for Parents: with more free childcare and more paternity leave for fathers.

Opportunity for Workers: with a £400 tax cut for millions of working people

Opportunity for Older People: witha triple lock pension guarantee and the needs by 2020 to cope with the pressures of an ageing population.

Opportunity for the Next Generation: with the budget balanced and our environment protected so that our children and grandchildren are not left to pay for the mistakes of this one.
