Nick Clegg at NewcastleGateshead conference 2012Speaking at the launch of the Liberal Democrat campaign for local elections in England, Liberal Democrat Leader and Deputy Prime Minister, Nick Clegg said:

"Liberal Democrat councillors across the country are working to protect the services that people value most, while Liberal Democrats in the Coalition clear up the economic mess Labour left behind.

"Our priority is clear, in difficult times we must make sure we do all we can to help ordinary working people. That is why, unlike Labour or the Conservatives, every Liberal Democrat council in England has frozen council tax. That is why Liberal Democrat councils are more likely to earmark funds for the lowest paid than any other. And that is why this month Liberal Democrats in Government are delivering tax cuts for 25m working people.

"Liberal Democrats have a strong record in local government and are committed to fighting for communities across the UK."
