The Liberal Democrats yesterday announced plans to create a £17bn infrastructure fund to repair schools and hospitals across England.

The UK’s record on child poverty is woeful given that we are supposed to be the 5th richest nation in the world. To think that in this day and age around 30% of children in this country of ours are living in poverty is really shocking. Here in Walsall North the figures are even worse. […]
