May 31, 2010 11:18 PM

Local Shadow MP for Preston, Mark Jewell, has welcomed a new era for British politics.

Speaking to local members, Mark Jewell said he was delighted to see that Liberal Democrat policies will shape Britain for good.

The new coalition government has pledged to enact key Liberal Democrat promises;

Fairer taxes, with an increase in the income tax threshold to benefit those on lower and middle incomes.

A fairer start for children, securing extra funding for smaller class sizes and one-to-one tuition.

A fairer politics, with the chance to sack your MP, an elected House of Lords, a limit on donations and a register of lobbyists.

A fair and sustainable economy, with a bank levy, a green investment bank and robust action to tackle unacceptable bonuses.

Commenting on the formation of a new Government, Mark said;

"I campaigned strongly in the recent election in Preston, for fairer taxes, a new economy, a fair start for children and a new politics. As we enter Government we are already seeing those promises realised."

"The Liberal Democrats in Government will ensure the pledges I made to local people in our area can become reality.

"We are seeing a new era of British politics and we have an amazing opportunity for a new kind of Government, working together and delivering on policies we have been campaigning on for years."

"I will continue to hold our MP to account to make sure we get the best deal for our area."
