      Better Health, Better Housing and Exit from Brexit

      "Slough needs some Lib Dem councillors to bring effective opposition and new thinking on key issues facing residents following the repeated chaos of the changes in the Labour leadership of Slough Council." This is the message from Robert Plimmer as he launched the Lib Dems' campaign document for the May 2018 elections: Better Health, Better Housing and Exit from Brexit.

      Robert continued, "Following the local elections on 3rd May the Labour Party will remain in control of Slough Council - they already have so many councillors. Partners and new thinking are desperately needed on key issues, including how to provide better health, tackle the housing crisis, and let the people of Slough have the chance to have the final say on Brexit. The Lib Dems are committed to increasing expenditure on health and social care. It is vital that Slough Council works with others to draw up a long-term strategy to spend whatever money is available as effectively as possible".

      Robert Plimmer continued, "Effective opposition and scrutiny is needed because Slough's Labour-run Council ran some services so badly that central government had to step in and take over, as with the Childrens' Services. Areas such as the Heart of Slough project are mismanaged so badly by Labour councillors that they are delayed for years, while the town-centre suffers. The Labour Council also needs to be held to account when it wastes money on things like unwanted traffic schemes, and at the same time makes cuts to valued services such as youth clubs, concessionary fares and pushes up charges for healthy activities like hiring sports pitches."

      Robert concluded: "Our manifesto also sets out policies to tackle crime and anti-social behaviour, and protect the environment. Previous Lib Dem councillors had a strong record on these areas."
