Uk Coalition Government Agreement 2010

If the government`s response to Lord Browne`s report is a response that the Liberal Democrats cannot accept, arrangements are made for the Liberal Democrats to abstain from voting in every vote. The parties will lobby by establishing a legal register of lobbyists. We also agree to adopt a detailed agreement on limiting donations and reforming the financing of political parties in order to deprive politics of a large sum of money. Shortly after midnight on May 12, 2010, the Liberal Democrats came out of a meeting of their parliamentary party and the federal office to announce that the coalition agreement had been “approved by an overwhelming majority,” meaning David Cameron would lead a coalition government of Conservatives and Liberal Democrats. Later that day, the two parties jointly published the coalition agreement between the Conservatives and the Liberal Democrats, which set out the terms of the agreement.
