    New Liberal Democrat leader Tim Farron has today launched his seven campaigning priorities for Parliament.

    These priorities cross traditional department boundaries and Tim will be able to draw on the talents and expertise of multiple spokespeople to push this agenda.

    To ensure the party's concerns are echoed on the ground, he has appointed a Parliamentary Campaigns Team.

    Liberal Democrat leader Tim Farron visited the Jules Ferry refugee camp in Calais yesterday (Tuesday 4 August) to learn about the humanitarian work of the UNHCR and Medicins du Monde.

    On his visit he met a 14-year-old boy who had escaped Syria and was being treated for two broken legs. The boy was on his own - and was among a number of young men and boys who had fled Syria and North Africa. He had been injured trying to get into Britain.

    As President Obama's announcement of a clean power plan was hailed as the strongest action on climate change by a US president, Tim Farron has found the Conservatives' plans regressive.

    Commenting on President Obama's clean energy plan, Liberal Democrat leader Tim Farron said:

    "We have seen today how President Obama is committed to bringing in measures to tackle climate change, yet David Cameron is insistent on setting about dismantling the Coalition's green legacy.

    "Our own Prime Minister seems intent on rolling back the green agenda championed by Liberal Democrats in Coalition and it reflects his arrogant and lackadaisical attitude to climate change.

    "In America they are seeking to boost investment in wind and solar technology, but in the UK the Government is slashing support for these very same renewable energy sources.

    "Liberal Democrats will fight tooth and nail against these short sighted, ideological cuts to the programmes that we fought for in Government."

    Liberal Democrat leader Tim Farron has responded to the Prime Minister's remarks on the Calais migrant crisis. David Cameron said today that the UK will not become a "safe haven" for a "swarm of people coming across the Mediterranean".

    Tim Farron said,

    By blaming 'migrant swarms' for the current crisis in Calais David Cameron risks dehumanising some of the world's most desperate people. We are talking about human beings here, not insects.

    Of course, we need to improve security at the tunnel to protect our borders and stop migrants from dying on the tracks but we also need to address the wider humanitarian issue too.

    This means as a country we should accept our fair share of refugees by signing up to the EU asylum policy, rather than expecting others to do it for us. If Ireland can sign up to the scheme why can't we?

    By using the Prime Minister's language we lose sight of how desperate someone has to be to cling to the bottom of a lorry or train for the chance of a better life.

    Politicians from across the political spectrum should seize the opportunity to overhaul the House of Lords once and for all, Lib Dem leader Tim Farron has said.

    It comes amid the fallout of Lord Sewel's resignation from the House of Lords, which has sparked calls for a shake-up of the second chamber.

    Tim has written to party leaders in the Commons and Lords - as well as crossbench peers - urging them to back the case for reform.
