Lib Dems to fund more nurses, teachers and police in Oxford

The Liberal Democrats have outlined their 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 social care which would raise £42m for the NHS in the Oxford area, enough to fund
250 more nurses.

An additional £33m of funding for schools in the Oxford area paid for in part by reversing Conservative cuts to corporation tax, would be enough to pay for 181 more teachers.

Meanwhile a furtherl £8.3m in funding for Thames Valley Policy would pay for 166 more officers, helping to cut crime and ensure a stronger police presence in the area.

Kirsten Johnson, Liberal Democrat candidate for Oxford East, said:

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

“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.

“As your Liberal Democrat MP, I will fight for more money for the NHS and schools and a brighter future for Oxford.”

Flagship policies include: 

1. NHS:  The Liberal Democrats will introduce a 1p rise on the basic, higher, additional and dividend rates of income tax in the next financial year raising around £6bn per year, which will ringfenced to be spent on NHS, care services and public health.

3. Schools: The Liberal Democrats will invest nearly £7bn investment in our schools and colleges over the next parliament, to ensure no school, and no child loses out.

3. Police: The Liberal Democrats will invest an extra £300m a year into policing to reverse the rise in violent crime and boost community policing.
