    Liberal Democrats stand for wise, compassionate policies that care for the environment but also work. - David, Hartley

    The Liberal Democrat manifesto launched this week, here are some of the highlights of how it would benefit the people of Plymouth.

    FUND THE NHS

    The Liberal Democrats promise an additional £6 billion a year to the NHS and social care, £1 billion of this is earmarked for mental health. Waiting times for mental health care will be made to match those for physical health care. The Liberal Democrats would give an extra £9.6 million to social care in Plymouth, with a cap on the amount elderly people have to pay. This will be funded by adding 1p to income tax. These measures are widely supported by many health care heads and professional bodies and will help deliver complete healthcare for Plymouth.

    The Liberal Democrats in Plymouth have seen a surge in new members over the last eleven months and especially in the past two weeks.

    New member Connor Clarke said: "I joined the Lib Dems because they are unashamed in pro-EU, tolerant and internationalist outward-looking politics. Whilst Tories push for a Hard Brexit and Labour captiulate to it, only the Lib Dems can offer the effective opposition this country needs."
