Rugby Lib Dems back £1,100 Cost of Living Rescue Package ahead of local elections

Rugby Liberal Democrats have called for Cost of Living Rescue package to support struggling families in Rugby, ahead this week's local elections.

The package includes:

  • A VAT cut that would save the average family £600

  • A windfall Tax on Oil and Gas companies that would double the Warm Homes Discount from £150 to £300

  • A £200 Catch up voucher scheme to help children to catch up on the learning they have lost through covid

Nationally, the Liberal Democrats are also campaigning to scrap the unfair National Insurance hike imposed by the chancellor which has already cost families £1.4bn.

On Thursday 5 May 2022, residents in Rugby borough have a clear choice, they can support the Liberal Democrats who'll work hard, listen and tackle the issues that matter or the Conservatives who will take people for granted.

Rugby Lib Dems are demanding a fairer deal on the real issues that matter. That includes an emergency tax cut to help with the cost of living, more support to help children catch up on lost learning and a local ambulance fund to help our overstretched health services.

At the local elections this Thursday there is a clear choice: another Conservative Councillor or a hard working local champion for the Liberal Democrats.
