    Nick Clegg has said that all 16-21 year olds in England will get a 66% discount on bus travel.

    Appearing on Bite the Ballot's Leaders Live, which can be viewed on Youtube, Nick Clegg set out the proposal which would see all 16-21 year olds would be given a Young Person's Bus Pass. It would help young people with the cost of travel by offering a minimum two thirds discount on bus travel in England. Bus companies would then be able to add their own discounts on top of that.

    The Welsh Government's legislation on animal welfare does not go far enough to tackle many of the issues surrounding dog breeding in Wales, the Welsh Liberal Democrats have claimed today.

    The Animal Welfare (Breeding of Dogs) aims to stop 'puppy farms', where dogs may be kept in cramped conditions with little concern for their needs. However, campaigners have continuously voiced their concerns that the proposed maximum ratio of one member of staff to every 20 dogs is still too high.

    In the wake of the Scottish Referendum result and the Smith Commission process it is right that Government and all political parties should consider the implications for England, and indeed the rest of the United Kingdom.

    The Liberal Democrats believe it is now time to set out a reform programme to devolve more powers within England and to address the so called "West Lothian Question."

    Liberal Democrat Chief Secretary to the Treasury, Danny Alexander, has written to the Conservative and Labour LGA heads - Cllr Gary Porter and Cllr Jim McMahon on the issue of council tax.

    Dear Gary/Jim,

    As you may be aware, there have been some discussions in the past few weeks regarding the level at which the Council Tax referendum threshold should be set.

    While some Conservative colleagues in the Coalition Government favour leaving the cap at the level that it is, other Conservative colleagues have argued in favour of lowering the threshold to 1%. In practice, this would mean that even the smallest rise in Council Tax would result in Local Authorities having to hold a referendum.

    As I am sure you know, only one Liberal Democrat authority raised Council Tax at all last year and this level of discipline and protection for Council Tax payers has been a consistent trait of Liberal Democrat councils throughout this Parliament. Many more Labour and Conservative controlled councils chose to increase Council Tax last year.

    The Liberal Democrats have long believed in devolving power to the most local level, on the principle that the best decisions tend to be made by those closest to the people those decisions effect. It is for this reason, that the Liberal Democrats in the Coalition Government will not support proposals to lower the referendum threshold.

    Because of the state of the public finances, we are having to ask a lot of Local Authorities, who, by and large, are rising to the challenge of cutting expenditure while protecting important public services. Lowering the threshold will put unnecessary further pressure on local authorities and the much needed services they provide.

    Lowering the threshold is a change of policy that puts an unnecessary further constraint on local authorities. While I would strongly argue for local authorities to protect taxpayers from rises in Council Tax, nevertheless this is a choice that should rightly be made by Local Authorities and not be imposed centrally.

    While Conservative and Labour Councils have been quick to increase Council Tax, Lib Dems have not. In the end, these councils should be accountable to their electorates. It is not for central government to impose such constraints.

    Yours Sincerely,

    Danny Alexander MP

    Chief Secretary to the Treasury

    Like all 13 or 14 year olds of my generation in the UK I had my BCG vaccination while I was at High School. I remember that we all compared our scars for months afterwards. We believed at that time that TB - like smallpox - could be eradicated from our society.

    TB, or consumption, was supposed to be an illness of poverty of times gone by. In Victorian Britain it was known as 'the silent killer' and as many as one in four deaths was attributable to TB. So high was the TB death rate, in fact, that TB has been estimated to have killed more people than any other infectious disease in human history.

    A Conservative majority Government would cut the education budget by more than a quarter - or £13.3bn a year - by 2020, Liberal Democrat analysis has found.

    The analysis is based on the spending, tax and borrowing commitments made by David Cameron and George Osborne.

    Unlike the Liberal Democrats, the Conservatives have not committed to protecting funding for schools, nurseries and colleges in the next parliament.
