    The Federal Policy Committee has had a busy autumn, kicking off our next programme of policy development work.

    We have spent some time over the last few months trying to understand the party's key political priorities to win over the voters we need, and the right messages and supporting policies needed to achieve that (recognising that detailed policy is not usually the thing that swings most voters). This has been the starting point for our latest programme of work.

    The Liberal Democrats have today called for urgent measures to support the Clinically Extremely Vulnerable (CEV), including a formal return and improvement of the shielding programme.

    The Government has so far failed to announce any specific measures for those who were classed as CEV in spite of their increased risk of serious illness from Covid. It comes after two cases of the newly discovered 'Omicron' variant of Covid were reported in the UK.

    Today is Carers Rights Day, and the Liberal Democrats are continuing to stand up for carers.

    The Covid pandemic has shown that we are a nation of carers. But it's also shown how, for this Conservative Government carers are nothing more than an afterthought.

    From Ministers' abject failure to protect people in care homes, to their refusal to raise Carer's Allowance when they put up Universal Credit, carers have been forgotten and ignored again and again.

    Let's Make Lib Dems BME Friendly - It's Not What We Do, But How We Do It That Counts

    Below is an outline of why I am standing for Vice President.

    I am an established Race Equality and Diversity campaigner with a Business Management background and an established record of striving for Race Equity across the Party. In the course of my 25 years as Party member I have served on the Federal Policy Committee, International Relations Committee, been Secretary of the PCA, vice chair of EMLD and served as a Regional Diversity Champion. I am also Secretary of Lib Dem Friends of India. It is this personal history that accounts for my reputation as a Community Champion within the Party and my high profile amongst BME communities nationally.

    Time and time again, we hear that the reality of what ethnic minorities face in our party and in our politics does not match up to the principles we hold, and, as a party committed to equality, it is vital that we apply our values and make a change. I will provide the positive vision and leadership we need to move forward and make that happen.

    A campaigning Vice President, for a campaigning Party

    I was a 100/200m Sprinter. Catastrophe struck in my early 20's when my achilles tendon ruptured. For 20 months I was in a wheelchair. I needed wheelchair-friendly public transport to hospital and the inadequacy of it shocked me. It made me realise that everyone has a choice. When you see something that's wrong, do you leave it for someone else, or do you fight for change?

    Vision

    My goals for this role are:

    • I want to help provide a platform for better training and promote a programme that supports ethnic minority members to develop their potential, so they are competently able to stand for external and internal elections of office
    • I want to see established an attractive and resilient message that helps to build a strong foundation for the Liberal Democrats to engage and campaign with in Ethnic Minority communities
    • Within the party, I want to establish a better understanding of Ethnic minority issues on housing, education, LGBT+, heath, crime, etc. This will allow us to better serve the ethnic minority communities at a national and local level

    Our campaign has already got off to a flying start in the by-election caused by Owen Paterson's disgrace.

    The local party had already made impressive progress in this May's local elections. They secured a clear second place and created many marginal Conservative-Liberal Democrat wards.

    Now we have a brilliant opportunity to turbo-charge that growth in our support and to see just how angry voters are about sleaze and sewage. Ed Davey is already on his third visit there.

    The Liberal Democrats have always understood that thriving businesses and motivated entrepreneurs are central to our communities, innovation, quality of life and international standing we all want.

    It was the Liberal Democrats who pioneered wind power generation, foresaw the banking crisis, and are today prepared to work to rebuild the trading environment damaged by Brexit and the pandemic.

  • We urgently need more on street charging points
    Article: Nov 16, 2021
    Herts Liberal Democrat Group Leader Cllr Stephen Giles-Medhurst has warned of a chasm between cities/towns and rural areas in the
    availability of electric vehicle charging points, as new figures show that drivers in county areas have one charging point every 16 miles,
    compared to one for every mile in London.

    New analysis from the County Councils Network (CCN) shows that there are more publicly available charging points in London - 7,865 - compared to the entirety of England's counties, which are home to almost half of the country's population.

    With 7,781 public charging points in total in the 36 county areas the CCN represents, this means the average distance between chargers is 16 miles in those places. They are lagging well behind London, which has a charger for every mile on average, and England's largest eight cities, which have a six-mile distance between chargers.

    "It is clear that this makes it more difficult to drive an electric vehicle in England's counties compared to cities and towns, which could
    put people off switching from petrol and diesel. Just 35% of electric vehicles are registered in county areas, despite them being home to half of the country's population. Emissions have decreased slower in England'scounties since 2005, compared to every other part of the country", said Cllr Stephen Giles-Medhurst.

    "What makes it worse is that the Herts County Tories are vetoing on-road charging points except in exceptional circumstances. Their policy says they will only be agreed as an "exception" and they have already rejected installing lamp-post chargers in Watford. This affects both towns and villages and the suggestion that they may just be installed at car parks and supermarkets is not sustainable. Many villages have no-off road car parks expect perhaps if they have a public house and in towns you might have to walk ten minutes to a car park. The failure of the county council to provide the investment, or to allow the district councils to do so, will undermine the government's net-zero by 2050 target. They also say having good access to charging points is vital especially for visitors." said Cllr Giles-Medhurst.

    Only 21,925 chargers have been installed in England as of last month. This is a long way off the government's target of 150,000 a year and 1.5 million charging points by 2030.

    The Liberal Democrats have pointed out that unlike Tory-run Surrey County Council which is set to install 80 residential on-street fast charging points across four towns, Herts has no such plans.

    "Failure of the county council to provide this infrastructure will undermine the government's net-zero by 2050 target. Emissions have decreased slower in England's counties since 2005, compared to every other part of the country, " said Cllr Giles-Medhurst.

    Prior to Thursday's meeting, members of the Children and Young People's Cabinet Panel were shocked to receive a damning survey from 170 members of the SEND National Crisis Hertfordshire revealing the failure of the Conservative run County Council's SEND service to provide support for them, communicate with them, and oversee the assistance their children desperately need. The comments from the parents highlighted the drastic impact that these failings are having on them and their children. It was equally damning that the Chair dismissed this report as representing the views of only 170 families out of 7000, and officers were unable to clarify the true state of workload pressures their teams have to work under.

    Liberal Democrat councillors were shocked and disappointed that their proposals to strengthen the Domestic Abuse motion were blocked by the Conservatives at the Full Council meeting of Hertfordshire County Council on 19 October.

    The Liberal Democrat proposals include Hertfordshire Police recording crimes which are motivated by sex or gender following the example set successfully by Nottinghamshire Police in 2016 and followed since by 10 other police forces; that the Council seeks funding from the government to support survivors and victims through the Spending Review; and that the backlog of domestic abuse court cases be addressed with urgency.

    Mel first stood for election to the City Council in 2014 where she received 794 votes, 250 short of the winner. She stood again in the area in 2015 and 2016, increasing her vote share each time, and in 2019, in a by-election, she finally won with 1,307 votes. A fantastic achievement after 6 years of tenacious campaigning, always listening to the voters and focusing on the issues that mattered to them.

    The Liberal Democrat Conference on the Future of Europe

    Dear member

    I hope you managed to have a break of some kind this summer and are now, as we head into the autumn, refreshed and ready for our conference and debating season. For those of us for whom Europe is still the most defining issue of our time - and I suspect that as a member of the Lib Dem European Group (LDEG) that includes yourself - the next couple of months are going to be very exciting. You are being offered the opportunity to have your say.

  • Article: Sep 29, 2021

    The spring 2021 conference instructed the FPC to 'carry out a programme of work, including consulting
    widely within the party, to determine the best possible future framework for the UK-EU relationship across
    all policy areas, with the aims of: (a) demonstrating the benefits to UK citizens and businesses of a much
    closer relationship compared to the government's inadequate measures; (b) recommending roadmaps for
    the UK to rejoin the Customs Union, Single Market and other EU agencies and programmes as appropriate;
    and (c) maximising public support for eventual UK membership of the EU.'
    The FPC has appointed a small group, chaired by Duncan Brack and including representatives of the
    parliamentary party, the Federal International Relations Committee and the Liberal Democrat European
    Group, to implement the conference instruction. We have decided to approach our task through a series of
    conference motions and papers rather than one big one. Since we cannot realistically cover every possible
    relevant topic through conference motions, we are also encouraging our parliamentary spokespeople to
    put forward proposals for closer and stronger relationships with the EU in their spokespersonship areas.
    We organised a consultation session at conference in September, and we are collaborating with the Liberal
    Democrat European Group in organising these regional events, in order to give party members a chance to
    tell us what they think are the priority policy areas we should address, what the possible solutions within
    each area are, and the messages the party should use in promoting closer cooperation between the UK and
    EU. This is our initial list of key topics -

    Cultural, artistic and educational ties
    We thought this was a good topic to begin with, so the FPC submitted a motion to conference on
    'Rebuilding our Cultural, Artistic and Educational Ties with Europe'. The motion called, among other things,
    for the UK to rejoin the Erasmus Plus scheme, to establish a European cultural fund and to improve the
    Youth Mobility Scheme. It was passed without opposition.

    Trade
    The key topic is obviously the trading relationship between the UK and EU. For next year's spring
    conference we are planning a motion on Single Market and Customs Union membership. This is such a
    complex area, covering, among other things, freedom of movement, social, health and environmental
    standards and the Northern Ireland Protocol, that we'll be accompanying it with a short paper, to be
    published alongside the conference agenda. There is no doubt about the party's commitment to rejoining
    the Single Market and Customs Union - that was made clear at spring conference this year- but there are
    many issues to consider about the practicalities, the phasing and the impacts. Among other things, this
    should provide at least partial solutions to the recent supply-chain problems, including shortages of HGV
    drivers and staff in the transport, farming, food and catering and care sectors.

    Climate change and energy
    The FPC's policy paper on carbon pricing, which was approved by conference, includes the proposal to link
    the UK Emissions Trading Scheme with the EU ETS, thus increasing the effectiveness of emissions trading;
    and rejoining the EU ETS would be a requirement of UK entry to the EU in any case. Other potential areas
    for cooperation include working together with the EU in international climate negotiations; meeting
    emissions reduction targets jointly with the EU (in the same way as EEA countries do); and promoting
    greater interconnection with EU energy networks.

    Natural environment
    Potential areas for collaboration include re-adopting EU standards in areas such as pollution control, water,
    air, chemicals, biodiversity, waste, genetically modified organisms and environmental impact assessment
    (most of this would be required under Single Market membership in any case, but this approach could be
    adopted in advance); working with the EU on its new measures to require businesses to protect the
    environment, and human and labour rights, in their supply chains; and working together with the EU in
    international biodiversity negotiations.

    Rights of EU citizens in the UK and UK citizens in the EU
    This topic covers guaranteeing EU citizens' rights in law, including physical proof of settled status;
    automatic upgrading for those with pre-settled status; strengthening the Independent Monitoring
    Authority; and reiterating our commitment to the European Social Charter. We could also urge the UK
    government to ensure that EU member state governments are upholding the rights of UK citizens.

    Crime
    Issues under this heading include police and security cooperation, including access to the Schengen
    Information System (information-sharing for security and border management); rejoining Europol and
    Eurojust and the European Arrest Warrant; and arrangements for the reciprocal nature of judgements, for
    example under the Lugano Convention, which clarifies which national courts have jurisdiction in crossborder
    civil and commercial disputes and ensures that judgments taken in such disputes can be enforced
    across borders.

    Science
    Key aspects include alignment and co-operation as far as possible with EU science programmes such as
    Horizon Europe; participation in satellite systems including Galileo, EGNOS (the pan-European satellite
    navigation system) and Copernicus (the EU's Earth observation programme); participation in Euratom; and
    measures to improve access for EU nationals to UK academic institutions.

    Health
    Topics include workforce issues such as recognition of professional qualifications, scrapping the
    Immigration Health Surcharge, improving visa routes; agreement on health insurance cards (EHIC/GHIC)
    with EEA member states; cooperation with the European Medicines Agency; and the possibility of joint
    pandemic preparedness exercises between UK and EU in the future.

    Foreign affairs, security and development
    This heading covers a wide range of issues, including cooperation over security challenges such as those
    posed by Russia or China; the impacts and possible strategies towards unstable regions such as Afghanistan
    or the Middle East; and cooperation over development challenges, including Covid vaccination and climate
    finance. Other possibilities include coordinated use of 'Magnitsky sanctions' targeted on individuals
    responsible for human rights violations or corruption; and the creation of a shared forum for European
    states to address foreign and defence policy issues.

    Comments on this paper are welcome, either in person at the LDEG regional events and conference on 30
    October, or by email to policy.consultations@libdems.org.uk.

    Liberal Democrat Councillors have successfully persuaded the ruling Conservatives at Herts County Council to give a commitment to replacing thousands of trees that have been removed from highways.

    In a report, the Council's Highways and Transport Panel revealed that 4,494 trees had been removed from highways in the period 2018- 2021 but only 1,040 had been planted meaning a deficit of 3,455.

    Following pressure from the Liberal Democrats the Conservatives agreed to replace as many of the lost trees as possible where the location is suitable.

    Cllr John Hale, who pressed for the need to replace highways' trees said, "A large number of trees have been removed and very few have been replaced. I am pleased that the council has now agreed that more should be done to replace trees along our roads. Trees serve an important environmental purpose and should be replaced whenever possible."

    Group Leader, Cllr Stephen Giles-Medhurst said, "Urban street trees improve the street scene and contribute significantly towards reducing Co2 emissions in key pedestrian areas."
