Cost of Living Survey

People are struggling. Pensioners worrying about having the heating on for too long. Families who now face paying £1000s a year more in energy, petrol and food bills. We are determined to get more support for people who need it.

Taking a minute to fill in this survey will help us to make your voice heard on the cost of living crisis.

Health Survey 

As your Liberal Democrat parliamentary candidate, it is a top priority for me to make sure people across
our area have access to the best health services.
It doesn’t matter whether you are old or young, rich or poor - the NHS was designed to be there for all
of us, when we need to use it. 
But health workers and patients have all been badly let down by this government.

Every day I hear from people who can't see an NHS dentist, are struggling to see their GP or waiting years for surgery on hips or knees. 
I'd like to hear from you too to give me the best picture of what is happening locally.

Plymouth & South Devon Freeport

The Plymouth & South Devon Freeport came into being under a Conservative government, with a Conservative run South Hams District Council.  There was no public consultation and the Conservatives ensured it was fully signed and sealed before they lost control of the council to the Liberal Democrats in 2023.

 

The Liberal Democrats, as a party, are concerned that freeports will simply move jobs and investment to different parts of the country, rather than create new ones; that they could lead to costly tax cuts for big business, and that there are risks for illicit economic activity. Creating tax havens is no way to prop up a stagnant economy.

 

Here in South Devon I am concerned that the P&SD Freeport will move jobs from other areas of Devon, causing regional inequality and putting yet more pressure on rural communities especially, where year-round employment is vital. The leaders of Plymouth City Council, SHDC and Devon County Council have the final say in whether companies can relocate to the freeport from elsewhere or not.
