Local welcome for Liberal Democrat vision for Britain

July 19, 2008 12:00 AM

Liberal Democrats in Hinckley and Bosworth have welcomed the launch of the Liberal Democrats' vision for Britain by Party Leader Nick Clegg MP. Called 'Make it Happen', the paper will be debated at the party's conference in Bournemouth in September.

In 'Make it Happen' the Liberal Democrats say:

They will cut taxes for ordinary families

If your local hospital can't see you on time, they will pay for treatment elsewhere

They will switch taxes from people to pollution - so it pays to go green

To improve standards in education, they will fund extra help for those who need it most

They will put Britain at the heart of Europe to make us a force for good in the world

They will stop ID cards so we can keep control of our privacy

They will change the voting system so everyone's voice counts

They will bring communities together with local people in charge

They will give communities a say in how offenders pay for their crimes

Cllr Stuart Bray, Chairman of Bosworth Liberal Democrats said, "I am delighted to be able to back 'Make it Happen'. It sets out how the Liberal Democrats will run Britain.

"No resident of Hinckley and Bosworth has escaped the rising cost of food and fuel. The credit crunch is biting hard and local people are feeling the pinch.

"Nick Clegg has set out how we can help ordinary people through cutting taxes on those on low and middle incomes. Thousands of people in Hinckley and Bosworthwill benefit from this.

"We are taking the plans in 'Make it Happen' to the people of Hinckley and Bosworth during the summer to get their response. And in September, we will be heading to the Liberal Democrats' conference where we are looking forward to taking part in the debate."
