    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:


    An Inquiry into Covid-19

    In my speech, I called on Boris Johnson to set up the independent inquiry he promised me in the House of Commons last June. No more excuses. No more delays. The British people deserve answers.

    4.5 million fewer children with adequate education, 5.6 million fewer children a year immunised, 100,000 more preventable deaths. This cannot be the legacy of the UK's development policy.

    The Conservative Government has reneged on its manifesto pledge and cut spending on international aid from 0.7% to 0.5% of Gross National Income (GNI). That may sound like a small change, but the difference is billions of pounds in funding withheld from the countries that need it most, and thousands of lives are already being impacted

    It's a bittersweet moment for the party as we thank Mike German for his outstanding years as Party Treasurer and see him pass on the mantle.

    Responsible for fundraising initiatives for the Federal Liberal Democrats and our major political and general election campaigns, the role of Treasurer has been, and is, critical to our survival and success.

    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.

    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.

    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.

    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."

    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

    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.
