    The Government has only managed to negotiate one new trade deal - with Australia - since leaving the EU. It has simply "rolled over" 23 existing trade agreements that we were already parts of. This simply isn't good enough.

    A thriving economy needs thriving international trade. UK companies doing business in the EU need our help now. We are also at risk of losing our long-established status as a finance hub. Put simply, the government must get its act together.

    We've passed through some great changes to our Party constitution today that will update how party groups - previously known as SAOs and AOs work.

    The changes will expand the rights of party groups, simplify the process of setting one up and ensure that party groups get more support and are better integrated into the party.

    Our society is a brilliant one. Our democratic system goes back hundreds of years and we are committed to the fair rule of law. We have a fantastic tradition of education, creativity and innovation.

    We have incredibly strong institutions. This is clear in the fact our National Health Service has bent over backwards to support us through this pandemic. As much as possible we contribute to key international organisations to support a cooperative global system.

    Conference, our country needs us.

    Our country needs the Liberal Democrats, fighting harder for a better future and a fair deal.

    Because after five years of Brexit division and disruption -

    And eighteen months of this awful pandemic -

    Boris Johnson's Conservative Government is steering us all into another terrible crisis.

    We have seen the Conservative Government fail over and over again. Indifference and inaction in Westminster has caused the deaths of over 150,000 people from Covid, and counting.

    Even senior members of the Government did not follow the lockdown and social distancing rules. It is clear they see it as one rule for them, and another for the rest of us.

    It was fantastic to talk with Ed today. He gave answers to our member's concerns on Liberal Democrat policy

    The full Q and A will be posted soon but below are some of our highlights.

    Resolving the Healthcare Sector Crisis

    Ed pointed out that the most important thing we can do for our healthcare system is to resolve the vacancies issue.

    As Liberal Democrats, we believe in an equal, open, green society in which everybody has the chance to succeed. Whether giving power to local governments to lead the communities that they know best or fighting for a Britain that steps up to its international obligations, we want the UK to represent the people who live here - not just a small group of Westminster politicians and elites.

    Our current constitution allows for too much of the power and decision making to take place in Westminster and Whitehall. This excludes entire regions of the UK especially in England from being able to make a contribution to decisions that affect them.

    Communities feel unable to control what happens in their local areas. This leads to a dangerous feeling of powerlessness and alienation.

    Healthcare data matters. But so too does privacy. The collection and sharing of population health data is vital in advancing medical treatments and improving our nation's health. However, the public has a right to know exactly how their data is collected, stored, and shared.

    The Government has quite happily been collecting our healthcare data without paying much attention to privacy. It's time that changed.
