LIBERAL peer Lord Wallace of Saltaire was in Huddersfield to launch the party campaign.
And he was the guest at the formal adoption of the Liberal Democrat candidate for Huddersfield, Emma Jane Bone.
It was the final visit of three that Lord Wallace made in the same evening, starting in Dewsbury and finishing in Huddersfield after visiting the Batley and Spen constituency.
Miss Bone said: "The Liberal Democrats will increase the pension for all over 75s by £25 per week and provide free personal care for the elderly and for people with long term illnesses.
"We will also remove student tuition fees.
"The deeply unfair council tax will also be scrapped. A local income tax based on ability to pay would give a typical household an extra £450 a year and six million pensioners would pay no local tax at all.
"These are policies that will actually help people in their every day lives.
" I am very happy that Lord Wallace was here to officially launch our campaign in Huddersfield."
