    The Budget has confirmed that Liberal Democrat tax policy on reducing the Lifetime Allowance for pension contributions will come into effect in 2016/2017.

    From April 2016 the Lifetime Allowance will reduce from £1.25m to £1m, limiting the amount of tax relief available to the wealthiest pension savers.

    This will help protect the public finances by reducing the cost of income tax relief on pension savings.

    Liberal Democrats believe that the fairest way to restrict pensions tax relief is to ration the amount of tax-privileged pension saving an individual can make. This preserves incentives to save for everyone.

    Under Liberal Democrat manifesto plans announced today, young people will be able to buy their own home without needing a deposit.

    Instead the Rent to Own scheme will help first-time buyers onto the housing ladder by allowing them to build up a share in their home through renting.

    This is a revolutionary shift in housing policy that will give young people caught in 'generation rent' a chance at home ownership.

    Yesterday Tony Blair donated more than £100,000 to the Labour party's election campaign.

    Nick Clegg is passionate about anchoring these debates into the democratic process. If this means taking part in a "seven-sided 90 minute bite size squabble fest", so be it.

    "It is not right for one party and one man to hold the debates to ransom."

    "They are a right of the British people. Why should the Conservatives hold a veto over our democratic process?"

    We learned this lesson the hard way but we now have a system that works, with university funding made fair and sustainable by Liberal Democrats.
