    Norfolk Liberal Democrats are calling for Norfolk to have a comprehensive economic recovery plan.

    Brian Watkins Group spokesperson said, "Without a proper economic recovery plan we will push tens of thousands of people in Norfolk into poverty when the Government money runs out."

    "The Plan should answer the issues that matter most: what will happen next, who will take the lead, and how Norfolk's economy will recover as quickly as possible."

    Coming up on Saturday (18 July) is the next meeting of the Federal Board (FB). This is the body which I chair as your President and is, "responsible for directing, coordinating and overseeing the implementation of the Party's strategy and the work of the Federal Party".

    We're a bit like the board of trustees of an organisation, therefore, and Saturday's meeting will be our next quarterly review, where we review progress in the federal party over the second quarter of the year against our overall plan.
