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


    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.
