Specific figures have been published this week showing how local residents benefit from the Lib Dem Manifesto pledges delivered by the Coalition Government in this new financial year.
In Epsom and Ewell, thanks to the Liberal Democrats:
- 25,000 people are getting a £200 income tax cut – benefiting 23 million people across the country
- 800 people have been lifted out of paying income tax altogether, with more to come
- £625 million extra has gone to our schools, aimed at the most disadvantaged pupils – rising to £2.5 billion a year by 2015
- 14,700 pensioners have been given an extra £4.50 a week – and those retiring from today will be on average £15,000 better off over their retirement.
These are difficult times for people all across Britain, but this week has shown that this can also be an opportunity to reshape Britain into a fairer, more equal and greener country.
