Liberal Democrats pledge £1bn boost to NHS funding

Liberal Democrat plans to commit £1bn in extra NHS funding would be paid for by extra tax measures on the wealthiest in society, Danny Alexander has said.

The chief secretary to the Treasury spoke as party supporters gathered in Glasgow for their final autumn conference before the general election.

The plans for £1bn delivered annually for two years - between 2016 and 2018 - will be considered by party members.
