Prescott launches Wakefield election campaign

Mary Creagh, Labour candidate for Wakefield, said:

“It was great to have John in Wakefield to kickstart Labour’s general election campaign.

“As MP for the last 10 years I have stood up for Wakefield every step of the way. I fought the Tories’ damaging NHS changes and tuition fees rises. I have helped people affected by the hated Bedroom Tax.

“The choice on 7 May is between the Tories’ failing plan and a better plan for working families.   Labour offers a better future for Wakefield: for living standards, for the next generation, and for the NHS. Labour has a better plan for a better future.”

Mary’s pledges to Wakefield:

 I’m fighting for:

  1.  A pay rise for hardworking Wakefield – raise the minimum wage to £8 and a tax cut for 24 million people.
  2. Our NHS – 20,000 more nurses, 8000 more GPs and GP appointments within 48 hours. 
  3. Action on the cost of living crisis – freeze energy prices, more free childcare, tackle rip-off rents and scrap the bedroom tax. 
  4. A strong and fair economy – Labour will balance the books, cut the deficit every year and create more apprenticeships.
  5. Stronger border controls – 1,000 new border staff and new rules to ensure people coming to Britain are contributing rather than claiming benefits.
