    At sundown tonight, Jewish communities in the UK and around the world will mark the beginning of Passover, the eight-day festival commemorating the liberation of the Israelites after 400 years of slavery in ancient Egypt.

    The story of the Exodus has inspired generations; it's a story of hope and triumph. It shows us what's possible when we hold tight to faith in the midst of darkness and uncertainty. This is a message that's relevant, even today.

    Young people's lives have been severely disrupted by the Covid-19 pandemic. Lockdowns have taken a toll on young people's education, mental health and future prospects - hitting those with fewer resources especially hard.

    The Liberal Democrats believe significant policy changes are needed now to safeguard young people's futures. We want to make up for the opportunities missed in lockdown, giving young people the chance to flourish.

    At our Liberal Democrat Spring Conference today, I outlined my vision for building a Fairer, Greener and More Caring country by putting recovery first. Take a look at my commitments here:

    In May there will be elections for the West Midlands Police and Crime Commissioner and the West Midlands Metro Mayor. We will use the preference-based Supplementary Vote (SV) system of voting in which voters pick a second choice as well as their preferred candidate.

    The Home Secretary, Priti Patel, has set out plans that would see the SV system replaced by First Past the Post (FPTP) system as used in English council and parliamentary elections.

    Autism is a part of daily life for 2.8 million people in the UK. The Liberal Democrats want to see substantial changes to make sure every individual with autism can achieve their full potential.

    We believe that the government should do everything in its power to support the millions of autistic people living in the UK. Currently, that is not the case.
