Lib Dem Manifesto Launch

This week sees the Scottish Parliamentary election campaign step up a gear with the publication of manifestos. 

Today it was the turn of Tavish Scott to launch our manifesto. Among the interesting ideas was an exemption from council tax for pensioners  whose income is below £10K. I also welcome the protection of  Free Personal Care, the expansion of Telehealth and the support for more self directed support for those requiring care. 

While  in Edinburgh we probably won't have much call for the "Home on the Farm" scheme to develop rural housing  I do welcome the general thrust of the Housing manifesto. 

I also welcome the approach to Law and Order. The Lib Dem's are the  only party standing up for decentralised policing and the only ones wanting to protect our traditional freedoms.

Anyho' if you want a look at what we are proposing  just click here Scottish Lib Dem Manifesto .
