Hull Lib Dems say that 2.7% rail fare rise is a "kick in the teeth" for commuters in the Hull area

The Liberal Democrats have said the news that rail fares will rise by 2.7% in 2020 is a “kick in the teeth” for rail passengers in Hull. The increase will leave commuters in Hull paying £116.32 more for an annual season ticket to Leeds.
 
Under Liberal Democrat plans, the 2.8% increase in 2020 would be cancelled and commuter rail fares would be frozen for the next five years. This would save season ticket holders from Hull to Leeds £1,889.57 over the next five years.

Hull Lib Dems call for parity in funding for mental and physical health

At Hull City Full Council on 21st November the Liberal Democrat Group called for the new Prime Minister to “address the disparity between physical and mental health and resolves to address the funding crisis.”

The Motion, moved by Lib Dem Drypool Councillor Linda Chambers, noted a “record of delayed diagnosis, assessment and treatment, restrictions to access, referrals out of the city and the failure of a Crisis Team to meet the 24/7 needs.” This paints a bleak picture for the current status of mental health services in Hull.

'Time running out to tackle the climate emergency!' say Hull Lib Dems
