Liberal Democrats are the only party of business and a stable economy

Liberal Democrat Chief Secretary to the Treasury, Danny Alexander, will tomorrow (Monday 23 February) highlight the importance of economic stability and why the Liberal Democrats are the only Party capable of delivering for business in the UK.

Speaking to an audience at the Saïd Business School in Oxford Danny is expected to say:

On the economy:
“We are the only major Party that knows that economic stability is the bedrock that businesses need to start up, to invest and to grow. 
“We are the only Party that will fight to keep our place at the top table in Europe. 
“We are the only Party with a clear commitment to industrial strategy, to infrastructure and to skills. 
“We are the only Party with common-sense policies to balance the books, but to do so fairly. 
“We are the only Party with a plan to eliminate the deficit and then to allow our country to turn the corner, to offer the hope of a more prosperous future. 
“We are the Liberal Democrats – and we will keep Britain on track.” 
And speaking on the Conservatives:
“For all they lay claim to the mantle of economic and business competence, the Conservative Party is riven in two on the issue which will affect British business more than any other single issue: Our continued membership of the European Union. 
“Any Party that, by its actions or deeds, gives more credence to the idea that withdrawal from the EU is in our national interest is, no matter what it claims, working against the national interest. 
“You can’t claim to have a “long term economic plan” if you don’t know where you’ll be in two and a half years’ time!"
