The Labour Party manifesto recognises that if we don’t take urgent action to deal with the climate emergency, we’ll have no planet to live on.  Economic growth cannot be at the expense of our environment.  We need to plan for a sustainable future, and a just future, that helps everyone in our community.  

Labour Party candidate for the Buckingham constituency, David Morgan, said:

“Beneath our pretty villages are tales of hardship and difficulty for people of all income levels. A silent majority for whom the Labour Party now speaks. Rural communities need more support.  Our manifesto delivers that. They need more support not just to counter isolation and poor access to public services, but because rural communities are the frontline guardians of our environment.

“Our plans support families, help young adults have their own home, and re-imagines how we organise our economy so that we work with nature to build a sustainable future.

“The problems of today are caused by yesterday’s way of doing things.  More of the same is not the answer. We need bold new ways to tackle these issues and build a better tomorrow.  This manifesto delivers the real change we all know we need.”
