NEC statement on disability and public service cuts
The Liberal Party NEC notes recent political developments as the Secretary of State for Work and Pensions has resigned sighting grave concerns over projected cuts to disability benefits.

The Liberal party believes that the wealth to sustain affordable public services and a robust safety net for the most vulnerable in our society exists, but requires a radical change in the political will and thinking behind funding public services.

As an alternative we would promote Land Value taxation to adequately fund public services, whilst there should be a UK Universal Inheritance for all UK-born UK citizens at 25, starting at, for example, £1,000 and increasing annually for ten years or more by the same amount.

This far sighted scheme would be financed by progressive taxation on cumulative lifetime inheritances, in combination with a much reduced tax on cumulative gifting, of all capital gifts and inheritance.

These schemes underpin a Liberal Party constitution which aspires to create a society in which every citizen shall possess liberty, property and security, and none shall be enslaved by poverty, ignorance or conformity.
