Welcome to the Basingstoke and Deane Liberal Democrats.

It's an exciting time to be a Liberal Democrat. Membership is at record levels and our message is resonating with the public, as our performance in the 2017 General Election, when we won 50 percent more seats, demonstrates.

Closer to home, the Basingstoke branch now has around 50 percent more members than it had a year ago.

Above all, we're here to help so get in touch or visit our Facebook page if you want us to tackle an issue on your behalf.

We're on our way up, and that gives us an incredible opportunity to make a meaningful difference at both a national and local level. So get on board and help us to #ChangeBritainsFuture.

    It has been reported that more than 400 high-rise residential buildings still have the same type of external cladding blamed for the Grenfell Tower fire.

    When it is about people's homes, safety must come first.

    Grenfell should never have happened. The fact that thousands of families are still living in unsafe high-rise buildings is a disgrace.

    A group including representatives of major pharmaceutical companies have written to the Health Secretary to state that if urgent action is not taken the UK will not have a medicine supply that will suffice in a no deal Brexit.

    The Government simply cannot guarantee that there won't be shortages of medicines

    A Liberal Democrat amendment by Tavish Scott MSP has committed Holyrood to "providing unequivocal support for a public vote on the final terms of the Brexit deal".

    It won cross-party support, and passed overwhelmingly in the Scottish Parliament, with 106 votes for and 8 against - and one MSP who said he voted against by mistake!

    Bus users will be relieved that the Tories have not axed an essential bus service covering the South East of Basingstoke, including Eastrop, Black Dam, Brighton Hill and Viables.

    Following the announcement of the Conservatives' proposed bus cut, 850 residents signed the 'Save Our Bus' petition organised by local Lib Dems.

    This festival of lights signifies the triumph of light over darkness, knowledge over ignorance and joy over despair. It is a time of hope and rejuvenation.

    Seeing Diwali celebrated by so many here in Britain is also a reminder of the rich diversity of our country and the communities who have contributed so greatly to our nation's success.

    In common with both other parties we have seen a dip in our income in the year after an election, made all the more acute after two elections (and a referendum) in two years. Donation fatigue and lower revenues are understandable at this point.

    Millions of EU citizens in the UK have been living under a cloud of uncertainty for more than two years. After being quizzed by MPs on two separate occasions, the Immigration Minister has utterly failed to offer them any clarity.

    The Minister was still unable to answer what immigration checks EU citizens will be subject to after Brexit

  • Article: Nov 5, 2018

    The result of the EU referendum changed an awful lot: the Prime Minister, the economic outlook, Britain's political discourse and our standing in the world. But there are 3.6 million people whose lives have been affected more than most. These are the citizens of other EU countries who live in the UK.

    Liberal Democrat MPs Layla Moran and Stephen Lloyd are calling on the Government to create a 'Women's Equality Day' to fall on the Spring Bank Holiday.

    2018 marks the centenary of the extension of suffrage to some women and the 90th anniversary of universal suffrage.

    To mark this, Stephen Lloyd challenged female pupils from Willingdon School in his constituency to come up with a campaign which he could deliver in Westminster on their behalf. The winning idea was to create a Women's Equality Day.
