Its only a few days before we vote in the 2015 General Election, and I decided to do a quick audit of the main party manifestos against the FPH ‘Start Well, Live Better’ 12 point action plan for public health.
I downloaded each full manifesto in PDF format and used the ‘advanced find’ command to identify where topics were discussed within the document. Please do let me know if I have made any mistakes and I will gladly amend the chart.
Declaration of interest: I have been a member of the Green Party of England and Wales since November 2014. I am therefore more familiar with their policies than those of other parties. However I used the same approach and discounted any policies which were not in the 2015 manifestos (even if the party has otherwise stated support, such as the Greens supporting plain-packaging for tobacco).
