Liberal Democrats will raise income tax

The Liberal Democrats plan to raise income tax by 1p to help fund the NHS and social care services. This will be a key manifesto commitment, and comes after a mixed performance in the local elections, which saw the party increase their vote share by 7%, but lose 40 seats.

Lib Dem leader Tim Farron has been critical of the Prime Minister’s handling of the NHS, saying ‘Theresa May doesn’t care about the NHS or social care. People are lying on trolleys in hospital corridors and she has done nothing’

‘We are prepared to be honest with people and say that we will all need to chip in a little more’.
