Earlier this week, the Liberal Democrats launched their manifesto plans for a brighter future, with pledges to reverse Conservative cuts and increase funding for the NHS, schools and police.

The Liberal Democrats would put a penny on income tax for health and care would raise £58m for the NHS in Dorset, enough to fund 345 more nurses.

An additional £78m paid for in part by reversing Conservative cuts to corporation tax, would be enough to pay for 431 more teachers across the county.

Meanwhile an additional £2.4m funding for Dorset Police would pay for 48 more officers, helping to cut crime and ensure a stronger police presence in the area.

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

The Liberal Democrats 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.

Vikki Slade, campaigner and Liberal Democrat candidate for Mid Dorset and North Poole said:

“These plans would build a brighter future for people across Dorset and reverse Conservative cuts to our schools, hospitals and police.

“We want to build a fairer Britain, with properly funded schools and hospitals, a clean environment and an innovative economy.

“As a Liberal Democrat MP, I will continue to put local people first and fight to defend our NHS and hospitals, schools, buses and libraries, ensure our high streets thrive as the centre of our communities and protect our special countryside against fracking.”
