Louise Webberley candidate notice

In 2019, you don’t have to choose between a Tory and an ex-Tory – you can vote for real change. Vote for policies you believe in. Vote for someone who understands local issues and is listening to local people.

Louise Webberley is a working mother and a Totnes Town Councillor, who supports vulnerable young people across the constituency. She lives in Totnes with her family, and loves cycling and wild swimming. Louise has a strong work ethic and a passion for justice, whether she is representing tenants threatened with eviction or demanding an end to the punishing roll-out of Universal Credit. She has really made her mark on the town with her support for a Climate Emergency response and local campaigns like Plastic Free Totnes.

Labour policies for Totnes and South Devon

  • Sort Brexit in six months: Labour will legislate for a referendum with two clear options: leave with a sensible deal that keeps our rights and jobs, or remain in the EU.
  • Transform the economy. Labour will invest £250 billion in energy, housing and transport through a National Transformation Fund. Coast and country towns will be targeted though Regional Investment Banks.
  • Invest in 200,000 green new jobs, creating a green industrial revolution, retrofitting 4 million homes, and working towards net zero carbon emissions by 2030.
  • Raise the living wage to £10 an hour for all workers over the age of 16.
  • Create a National Education service providing high quality education throughout life with free nursery care, properly funded and locally accountable schools, and no student fees.
  • Save our NHS by ending privatisation and sell-offs, investing in our hospitals, training more GPs and nurses, and providing free prescriptions for all. Our NHS is not for sale.
  • Introduce free personal care for over 65s, the first step to creating a National Care Service that gives people security in their old age.
  • Scrap Universal Credit, ending the benefit cap, the two-child limit and the five-week wait for payment.
  • Build a million genuinely affordable homes over ten years, the majority for social rent, the biggest council house-building programme in a generation.
  • Reinstate the pension rights of women born in the 1950s and 60s and restore free TV licences for over 75s.
  • End rough sleeping, give tenants new rights, and ensure tower blocks are safe to live in.
  • Tackle violent crime, increase the number of police officers and guarantee every young person has access to youth services in their community.
  • Bring rail, mail, water and the energy grid into public ownership ensuring affordable, sustainable public services.
  • Invest in public transport, nationalising rail and investing £2bn in the network, reinstating bus routes, and offering free bus passes to young and old.

Only Labour can bring the country together after a decade of cuts and crisis.

Vote Louise. Vote Labour. For the many, not the few.
