  • Tim in Westminster

    Speaking this afternoon, South Lakes MP Tim Farron said that the Queen's Speech should have done more for Cumbria.

    Tim pointed to some welcome announcements - the increase in support for mental health, 30 hours free childcare a week for three and four-year-olds by 2017 and an increase in the personal allowance from £10,600 to £12,500. But, he added, these were all things the Liberal Democrats had proposed in the previous government.
