See the above posting about the national picture – but here’s the information just for Bury!
Bury’s share of the country’s debt now stands at a dangerous £6.38billion and something needs to be done.
Over the last seven days in Bury, thanks to Liberal Democrats:
68000 people are getting a £200 income tax cut – benefiting 23 million people across the country
2100 people have been lifted out of paying income tax altogether, with more to come
£625million extra has gone to our schools, aimed at the most disadvantaged pupils – rising to £2.5billion a year by 2015
35800 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.
