The Liberal Democrats have released their manifesto for the 2017 General Election.

The flagship policies from the Liberal Democrat manifesto are:

  • Brexit: The Liberal Democrats will give the people a chance to change Britain's future by holding a referendum on the final Brexit deal with the option to remain.


  •  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.


  • 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. We will reverse cuts to frontline school and college budgets by protecting per pupil funding in real terms, introduce a fairer national funding system, which includes protection so that no school loses out and protect the pupil premium in real terms.


  •  Economy: We will build an economy that works for the long term: prosperous, green, and fair. The Liberal Democrats will launch a £100bn package of infrastructure investment to help build 300,000 homes a year, improve road and rail links and install fibre-optic broadband across the UK. We will create a new ‘start-up allowance’ to help budding entrepreneurs, aim to double the number of businesses which hire apprentices and support investment in renewable energy.
