The Liberal Democrats have launched their manifesto plans for a brighter future, with pledges to reverse Conservative cuts and increase funding for the NHS, schools and police.
The Party’s landmark policy would give the people the final say on the Brexit deal which would include the option to remain in the EU.
An additional £26m of funding for schools in the East Riding, paid for in part by reversing Conservative cuts to corporation tax, would be enough to pay for 147 more teachers.
Meanwhile an additional £4.4m funding for Humberside Police would pay for 89 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.
Liberal Democrat candidate Denis Healy said:
“We want to build a fairer Britain, with good schools and hospitals, a clean environment and an innovative economy.
“You don’t have to accept Theresa May and Nigel Farage’s cold, mean-spirited vision of Britain.
“The Liberal Democrats will stand up to a bad Brexit deal that will cost jobs and put up prices and give you the final say.]
“As your Liberal Democrat MP, I will fight for a better deal on Europe, more money for the NHS and schools and a brighter future for Beverley & Holderness.”
