Protecting our public services

Westminster Manifesto 2017

  • Health, social care, education, housing and many aspects of transport are already devolved to the Scottish Parliament where Green MSPs are making Scotland better with a bolder parliament.
  • We believe education is a right, not a privilege, with high-quality education equally accessible at all stages of people’s lives. 
  • We support a public NHS that is free at the point of use, and want to see that principle extend to social care.
  • We believe that everyone deserves a warm, affordable and accessible home and support rent controls to give a fairer footing to renters.
  • We will continue to fight against tax breaks for the airlines from the Scottish Government, or an extra Heathrow runway as the UK Government proposes. We will instead prioritise investment in a publicly-owned rail service, and accessible local bus services.
  • The design of public services may be devolved, but change at Westminster is needed to invest. Green voices will help deliver the change needed to end our reliance on fossil fuels, deliver millions of green jobs, and begin the transition to a universal basic income.
