Trudy welcomes Conservative Manifesto

Campaigning on the doorsteps over the past week hearing local support - Trudy Harrison then attended the launch of the Conservative Manifesto.

Boris Johnson revealed his plans, which are vital for Copeland and its community, including getting Brexit done; extra funding for the NHS; more doctors and nurses; maintenance grants for trainee nurses; more GP appointments; nuclear energy support; 20,000 extra police officers; investment in schools and apprenticeships and no raise of income tax, VAT or national insurance.

Trudy, Copeland’s Conservative parliamentary candidate, said: "Thanks again for the warm and positive support out and about in Copeland this week. And the Conservative Manifesto launch reinforced why I’m so proud to be your Conservative candidate for Copeland. Anyone considering a career in nursing will receive a maintenance grant of £5,000-£8,000 each year of their training - with UCLan’s medical school on our doorstep this is brilliant for our hospitals. Boris is guaranteeing investment in our schools, skills and infrastructure, protecting our NHS, recruiting nurses, supporting our nuclear energy expertise here in Copeland and matching the current annual budget for farmers.

"And as Boris describes, we want to build on a 'Britain which is able to leave the world in a better place - carbon neutral by 2050 and Corbyn neutral by Christmas!"
