In their bold local election manifesto, the Liberal Democrats have pledged to rebuild the local economy and maintain a balanced budget, so that Milton Keynes can recover from COVID-19.
The Group have said that they will:
Liberal Democrat Finance Spokesperson, Councillor Robin Bradburn, said: “The future of Milton Keynes now depends on how our economy recovers from the impact of COVID-19. As a Council we must do everything in our ability to put in place the infrastructure and support for businesses to thrive again. By doing this, we will attract businesses, investment, and jobs, as well as achieving a further balanced budget so we can continue to maintain reserves which have proved so essential during the pandemic.”
Robin added: “Some of our residents will unfortunately face redundancy and unemployment, so we have a plan to support retraining and lifelong learning. We will fight even when things are out of our control, for instance by lobbying the Conservative government to give our high streets the financial support they need.”Leave a comment
