      Cait Clucas will be the Liberal Democrat candidate for the constituency of Tewkesbury at the General Election on June 8th 2017.

      Cait believes that the Conservatives have shown themselves to be strong on slogans but weak on action and points to current MP Laurence Robertson's voting record in the House of Commons as an indication of how out of touch he really is with the people of Tewkesbury - voting against equal marriage rights and equality issues, voting against better treatment of the disabled and long-term sick, voting against higher taxes on the most well off and big business, and supporting cuts in welfare benefits for the most vulnerable.

      As the county prepares to go to the polls to elect a new County Council on May 4, Gloucestershire's Liberal Democrats have published their most detailed manifesto ever, setting out what they would do to get the Council back on track after 12 years of Tory failure.

      The headline proposals are:

      • Fixing the roads AND protecting the environment
      • Boosting the economy AND stopping council waste
      • Making the county safer AND healthier.

      Liberal Democrats will be putting the spotlight on the county's NHS funding crisis at the last council meeting before Gloucestershire goes to the polls in May.

      NHS services in Gloucestershire currently face a funding gap of £226million by 2020-21, an analysis of local NHS plans has found.

      Both locally and nationally, the Liberal Democrats have slammed the Government's failure to provide enough extra cash for the NHS in the recent Spring budget, warning that local services will struggle to cope with growing demand.

      County Liberal Democrats have today spoken out against calls to build thousands of houses on the site of Gloucestershire Airport.

      Councillor Jack Williams (LD: Churchdown) who represents the area that includes the airport is firmly opposed to the Staverton site being used for housing and has called the idea made by a Conservative Borough Councillor as "ill conceived and ludicrous".

      Leader of the Liberal Democrat County Group on Gloucestershire County Council, Cllr. Paul Hodgkinson and Leader of the Liberal Democrat Group on Cotswold District Council, Cllr. Joe Harris have today sent a joint open letter to the Secretary of State for Education, Rt Hon Justine Greening MP.

      The letter asks the Education Secretary to listen to the concerns of head teachers across Gloucestershire and revise the proposals for a national funding formula for schools that will see nearly ten thousand schools nationally lose out.

      Lib Dems force huge changes to Tory budget

      After a decade in charge at Shire Hall, the Tories presented their 12th budget. It contained large cuts which hit vulnerable people and failed to make investment in vital services and infrastructure.

      The Liberal Democrats presented a series of amendments to the Budget totalling £6 million. After a long break in the meeting, Shire Hall's Tory bosses backtracked and incorporated this new money into the budget.

      The new funding has been found by the Lib Dems without the need to increase Council Tax any further than already proposed by the Conservatives.
