Sir Vince Cable joins Liberal Democrat candidate, Adam Dance, in Chard

29 Jun 2024

This afternoon, Adam Dance was joined by the Rt Hon Sir Vince Cable, previous leader of the Liberal Democrats, to hear the concerns and questions of voters in Chard ahead of next week's General Election.

Sir Vince said:

"I am spending several days in Somerset, where we expect to win back parliamentary seats for the Liberal Democrats.  However this is a competitive race, and nothing is taken for granted. I am here to support Adam Dance, who is an excellent candidate as I believe we will be able to bring the Yeovil constituency back to the Liberal Democrats, where Paddy Ashdown was the MP."

Adam responded:

"I am very grateful for Vince taking time to join me in speaking with a range of voters across Chard.  We want to make the case for a Fair Deal with the Liberal Democrats or more of the same with the  Conservatives. 

"Yeovil and Chard deserve greater support from our MP which I intend to provide starting on Friday, if I am successful in the election."

Adam is ready to press for A Fair Deal which includes:

  • an NHS which works for us all, and in particular supports those most in need, be they the elderly, the young or those with mental health concerns;
  • support for local businesses, both those on the High Street and our national companies such as Leonardo;
  • care for our natural environment, especially holding our water companies to account for the state of our rivers and waterways.

Sir Vince arrived in Chard after visiting Taunton, and will be travelling next to Mendip & Wells.  All three are parliamentary seats the Liberal Democrats have in their sights.
