    Ahead of the key vote on Monday on whether the UK should offer sanctuary to 3,000 child refugees, Liberal Democrat leader Tim Farron has written to every MP calling on them to put party politics aside and 'stand up for humanity'.

    The Government last week tried to buy off MPs with a proposal to take up to 3,000 additional people including children from Syria and North Africa over four years, but this will not help one of the thousands of children in Europe today.

    Article: Apr 24, 2016

    Liberal Democrat candidate, Jacky Howe has pledged to adopt a partnership approach to road traffic issues if elected to be Police and Crime Commissioner for Norfolk.

    "Too many people are killed or suffer life-changing injury on the roads of Norfolk. Numbers of collisions may be falling, which is of course to be welcomed, but each one is a tragedy for all concerned and deserve careful and sensitive engagement with public bodies involved."

  • HM Treasury analysis: the long-term economic impact of EU membership and the alternatives
    Article: Apr 18, 2016

    Commenting on Treasury analysis, which shows that Brexit would cost British households up to £4,300, Leader of the Liberal Democrats Tim Farron said:

    "The sheer volume of serious and sobering evidence against turning our backs on Europe is overwhelming. The Treasury assessment today, showing a £4,300 cost to families, gives another stark warning about the impact on every household in Britain.

    The Government has agreed a Liberal Democrat amendment to the Housing and Planning Bill, which protects vulnerable tenants from being wrongly evicted.

    Under the Housing & Planning Bill, landlords get faster access to a property if they believe the tenant has abandoned it.

    The successful amendment requires a landlord to get in touch with a third party such as a charity, local authority or individual who has helped to pay the tenant's deposit. If the landlord gets a response that the tenant has not abandoned the property they can't change the locks and reclaim it.

  • Stronger in bus
    Article: Apr 14, 2016
    By Norwich South Liberal Democrats

    Kicking off the campaign to stay in the European Union, the 'Britain Stronger in Europe' battle bus made an appearance in Norwich. On board the bus was Liberal Democrat peer Dick Taverne, a high profile supporter of staying in the EU.

    The UEA Liberal Democrat group turned out to support his visit and show their commitment to the cause of saving jobs, keeping prices low and protecting the environment - by choosing to stay in the EU. A valuable question and answer session was used by Lord Taverne to display his passion for the campaign, praising the vision and international cooperation that the European Union has brought to the world stage.
