Welcome to Ealing Central & Acton Lib Dems

This site has news and information about the Liberal Democrats in the Ealing Central & Acton constituency.

Following boundary changes, the constituency now covers Acton, Southfield, Ealing Common, Walpole, Hanger Hill and Ealing Broadway. The Shepherds Bush part of the previous Ealing, Acton & Shepherds Bush constituency is no longer within our constituency.

Jon Ball, who was the Lib Dem candidate at the general election in May 2010, is the parliamentary spokesperson for Ealing Central and Acton. At the election Jon polled 13,041, which is the highest vote ever recorded for a Liberal or Liberal Democrat in the area; it now requires a swing of just over 5% for the Liberal Democrats to win.

    Today the Liberal Democrats lanched our manifesto for the General Election with plans to balance the books but to do so fairly.

    Ealing Central & Acton candidate Jon Ball, who was at the launch, commented on what he feels are the most important policies for Ealing:

    "Firstly, we in the Liberal Democrats are committed to investing an extra £8bn a year in the NHS by 2020 to enable our health service to cope with medical inflation and an aging population. This would mean an extra £57.6m a year extra for the Ealing Clinical Commissioning Group to spend on healthcare here in Ealing.

    The Liberal Democrats have long been campaigning to give renters a better deal. This week, the Deregulation Bill was passed by the House of Lords which prevents tenants from 'revenge evictions', and returns to the House of Commons for amendments. The data for the percentage of housing in the private rented sector for each Ealing Borough constituency, according to the UK Polling Report, is as follows:

    In Ealing, things are improving as we see that crime is down, there are more people in employment and millions of residents have been taken on apprenticeships across the country.

    Those running Ealing Town Hall, like to take the credit for the improvements to our education system, however they forget to mention that the majority of money comes directly from the coalition Government.

    So when our primary and secondary schools are maintained, expanded and improved, large chunks of money comes from the government.Liberal Democrats believe in giving every child a fair start in life. That's why we put an extra £2.5bn into schools each year from our 'Pupil Premium', as promised in the 2010 election manifesto. The money is targeted at those that need the most help, to achieve equality of opportunity.

    In just one year seven schools in our borough received the following amounts:

    Despite there being many reasons why Ealing Council should not close Carlton Road Day Centre, a Council committee decided to shut the day centre this week.

    In the meeting it was clear that when shut, the users, many who have profound physical and learning disabilities, will be offered sub standard care elsewhere - many outside the borough. Some locations are not suitable for the many users who have wheelchairs. Also the social element to the day centre will be lost when users are split up and forced to locations individually or in small groups.

    It is expected that the day centre will close this Summer and the building will be sold by Ealing Council, possibly for expensive flats.

    It is a scandal that Labour-run Ealing Council continue to close day centres especially when we have shown that there are alternatives to providing the quality service at the same location or elsewhere in the borough. In a meeting recently, one senior Labour Councillor said: "We will do worse things in the future." Scandalous.

    The Liberal Democrats thank all of those who have shown an interest in this issue and helped in the campaign collecting signatures and delivering leaflets about the matter.
