Lib Dem offer three times as good for Wales as Labour's

Frank Little, candidate for Neath, writes:

"I have just had through my door a Labour leaflet (presumably accounted for in 'national' expenditure, and thus not subject to the constituency cap) implicitly promising to restore £1bn of cuts to the Welsh budget if Jeremy Corbyn comes to power.

"Liberal Democrats would more than treble that. Tim Farron's manifesto promises at least £1.5bn for health, a similar amount for policing and £300m for education coming to Wales over the period of the next parliament.

"Moreover, Liberal Democrats' proposals are fully-costed, whereas the independent IFS doubts the credibility of Mr Corbyn's manifesto costings."
