    On the 8th March 2021, schools and colleges in England re-opened, in full, to 10 million people. Yet the Government has not taken nearly enough steps to make sure they are safe for pupils and teachers. We are calling for additional measures to enable schools to fully reopen safety.

    Today Liberal Democrat members championed a motion outlining real safety measures, prioritising pupils, teachers and parents.

    The Home Secretary's Police, Crime, Sentencing and Courts Bill would seriously restrict individuals' right to protest. Protesting is a basic human right and enables people to have their voices heard.

    The heavy-handed suppression of the peaceful vigil for Sarah Everard last weekend was disturbing and unnecessary. The Conservatives want to usher in a Bill that would lead to more scenes of peaceful protesters being needlessly arrested. That's why today, the Liberal Democrats have backed a motion that firmly stands against the Conservatives' Bill, seeing it for what it is - an attempt to undermine our democracy.

    The Conservative Government's offer of a 1% pay rise is an insult to the hard working NHS staff who have worked tirelessly to keep us and our loved ones safe.

    The Liberal Democrats have passed a motion demanding a fair pay rise for NHS workers. In the words of a local Lib Dem campaigner, "who can possibly think £6 is a reasonable pay rise for NHS staff?" They deserve a salary that reflects their skill, dedication and sacrifice.

    This year, the International Day for the Elimination of Racial Discrimnation focuses on youth standing up to racism. I am proud that the Young Liberals, the youth and student wing of the Liberal Democrats, are working to tackle racial discrimination in all of its forms.

    Education is a vital tool in the fight against racial discrimination. But there is much more that we need to do."

    Vladimir Putin and his government are a threat to the UK's national security. And it's shocking that this Conservative Government has turned a blind eye to Russia - rather than protect our democracy.

    That's why Liberal Democrat members have passed a motion demanding action following the 2020 Russia Report.

    At our conference today Liberal Democrat members have voted to update our party's policy on Europe and reaffirm our commitment to a closer relationship with our friends and neighbours on the continent.

    The motion they've passed:

    ❌ utterly condemns Boris Johnson's Brexit deal

    ✔️ thanks Liberal Democrat MPs for voting against the deal

    Covid-19 has wrought havoc on our small businesses, employees and self-employed people across the country.

    The Government has hung millions of small-business owners and the self-employed out to dry.

    More than three million people have been completely excluded from the Government's income support scheme.

  • Leicestershire's roads have been run down under twenty years of Tory rule at County Hall
    Article: Mar 18, 2021

    Leicestershire County Council is responsible for highways issues locally. For the past two decades the Conservatives have controlled the County Council. Over these 20 years Council Tax bills have soared yet roads maintenance budgets have been slashed. The result is many local roads are congested and our pavements and road surfaces are crumbling.

    Since Sarah Everard's tragic death there has been a huge outpouring of grief.

    We must interrogate, why is it that so many women feel so scared of men for so much of the time?

    And why are some men so violent towards women?

    I've been thinking about it all week. I've been looking at what other people have been suggesting. And I think everything needs to change.
