The Liberal Democrats will finish the job and finish it fairly

Posted by Steve Gee on Thursday 5 February 2015

The Liberal Democrats have set out their strategy for delivering a balanced budget in the next Parliament.

On 5 February Nick Clegg and Danny Alexander outlined the Liberal Democrats’ plans to finish the job of balancing the books by 2017/18, through a mix of tax rises and spending cuts, ensuring that the job is finished fairly.

This balanced approach means the Liberal Democrats can protect vital public services like schools and hospitals while also looking after the most vulnerable in our society.

The Liberal Democrats will finish the job of balancing the books while protecting vital public services. This will require increasing taxes on the very wealthiest and ensuring big businesses pay their fair share.

The plans outlined do not require any increase in the headline rates of taxation, income tax, national insurance, VAT or corporation tax.

As well as finishing the job of balancing the books, the Liberal Democrats will continue to protect NHS funding and the international aid budget.

The Liberal Democrats will also protect the education spending from cradle to college and will also maintain the triple lock on the State Pension.
