Alliance Launches Election Manifesto

The Alliance Party has launched its Westminster manifesto.

Alliance Deputy Leader, Naomi Long, said its MPs would bring a unique voice to Westminster.

She said: "Alliance followed through on each of our previous manifesto commitments in the last Parliament, fulfilling our pre-election promises to the people. We pledged to end double-jobbing - we did. We vowed to increase transparency in donations - we did. We guaranteed to fight welfare reform - we did.

"We did all that while providing the best value for money from any local party in Westminster. So while others are trying to make this election about representation in the House of Commons, the numbers don't lie. Alliance tops the poll."
