Wednesday, 26th March, 2014

Our friends in Oldham have copied us into three motions going to council on April 2nd:

Personal Taxation

Acknowledging the Liberal Democrat achievement of the £10,000 income tax threshold and supporting our Spring Conference call to move the threshold to match the minimum wage (currently £12,500) in the next parliament.

Jobs and Europe

Supports the “WhyIAmIn” campaign and demonstrates the importance of exports to the EU as a means of securing employment and economic recovery.

Metrolink

Seeking to add a direct Oldham-Manchester Piccadilly tram service after the expansion of the Metrolink network (the “second city crossing”).
