Liberal Democrat Chief Secretary to the Treasury, Danny Alexander, will tomorrow (Monday 23 February) highlight the importance of economic stability and why the Liberal Democrats are the only Party capable of delivering for business in the UK.
Speaking to an audience at the Saïd Business School in Oxford Danny is expected to say:
Almost half a million people in the UK are set to celebrate the start of the Chinese New Year tonight.
The celebrations are widely viewed as the most important holiday for Chinese people worldwide and festivities continue until the famous Lantern Festival in early March.
Commenting, Finbarr Cronin stated:
“The Chinese community in Wakefield District is very diverse and very strong, and this time of year helps recognise and celebrate that fact.
“I hope the festivities offer an opportunity for the Chinese community to reflect on their superb achievements locally as well as enable them to look forward and celebrate what’s to come.”
Mary Macqueen general election candidate for neighbouring Hemsworth added:
“I would like to send my warmest greetings to everyone celebrating Chinese New Year, may you have a prosperous new year.”
