The Liberal Democrat party

On Brexit and trade:

It will fight to stay in the European Union. It believes the best future as a country is as a member of the EU. Any form of Brexit will damage our economy. It plans to stop Brexit and use the Remain Bonus to invest in public services. It says staying in the EU will secure a £50bn Remain Bonus, with the economy 2% larger by 2024-25.

On small business:

Simplify business taxation to lower administration costs – supporting smaller companies – and reduce opportunities for tax avoidance.

Replace Business Rates in England with a Commercial Landowner Levy based solely on the land value of commercial sites rather than their entire capital value, shifting the burden of taxation from tenants to landowners.

Expand the British Business Bank to ensure that viable small and medium-sized businesses have access to capital and work with the major banks to fund the creation of a local banking sector.

On culture:

Support the tourist industry by upgrading the status of tourism within government, by creating a Department of Digital, Culture, Media, Sport and Tourism, with a designated Minister of State for Tourism.

Maintain free access to national museums and galleries.

Protect arts funding via the National Lottery.

On wildlife and exports:

It will work within the EU to ensure that future trade agreements require high environmental and animal welfare standards and legislate to ban the importing of hunting trophies where the hunting does not contribute to environmental protection.
