    The Liberal Democrats have hit out at Labour and Jeremy for Corbyn for not backing Britain's membership of the single market.

    Losing membership of the single market would hit prices, jobs and wages and the Liberal Democrats strongly back Britain's continued membership.

    Jeremy Corbyn has never spoken in Parliament positively about free trade in parliament since becoming an MP and has described support of the single market as 'free trade dogma'.

    Sal Brinton, President of the Liberal Democrats, will give a speech today to members on the final day of the party's Autumn Conference.

    She will say

    Good morning, Conference. Here we are, constitutional amendments concluded - how will we all manage next week without the excitement?

    But seriously, I want to thank you for your involvement and responses to the challenge I put to you over a year ago to think how we could improve our Federal structures, and how we can work more effectively as a party. The thousands of suggestions and comment that you made to the Federal Executive have truly helped shape what came to Conference, and your contributions to the debates over the last four days has been genuinely helpful.

    Below is the final version of Tim Farron's speech at the close of the Liberal Democrat conference in Brighton today.

    Liberal Democrats are good at lots of things. But the thing it seems that we're best at, is confounding expectations.

    We were expected to shy away from taking power, but we stepped up and we made a difference.

    The Liberal Democrats have urged the government to play its part in resettling refugees, in particular unaccompanied children, in an emergency motion at their Autumn Conference.

    The demand comes as Theresa May addresses a special UN meeting on migration in New York. Yesterday the Prime Minister resisted calls to take in more vulnerable refugees from Syria.

    Article: Sep 19, 2016

    Liberal Democrat Energy and Climate Change Spokesperson Lynne Featherstone has accused the Conservatives of trashing the coalition government's green legacy, including by slashing subsidies for renewable energy while spending billions subsidising Hinkley Point.

    The Government's own impact assessment has predicted up to 19,000 job losses in the wind and solar sector.

    Article: Sep 19, 2016

    Liberal Democrat Treasury Spokesperson Baroness Susan Kramer has called for a 45 billion pound investment in house-building, enough to build 150,000 homes a year for five years.

    This would form part of a wider fund to deliver on the infrastructure the country desperately needs - on roads, rail, broadband, schools and hospitals.
