    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 at their Spring Conference demanding a fair pay rise for NHS workers. Upton Lib Dem campaigner, Sukh Dhillon (see left) said Slough Lib Dems fully support the campaign for a fair pay rise for NHS staff.

    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.

    The UK's 11 million unpaid carers - young and old - do a remarkable and important job, but they need more support, said Ed Davey, Lib Dem Leader (see left).

    From juggling work and looking after loved ones to taking on more caring responsibilities during the pandemic, carers face difficult challenges everyday.

    Covid-19 has wrought havoc on our small businesses, employees and self-employed people across the country.

    The Government has hung millions of small-business owners and the self-employed out to dry.

    More than three million people have been completely excluded from the Government's income support scheme.

  • Give NHS heroes more than 1% rise
    Article: Mar 13, 2021

    A 1% pay rise for nurses is nothing short of an insult.

    The Conservatives wasted hundreds of millions on private firms that failed to deliver usable protective equipment. But they refuse to give our NHS heroes a proper pay rise.

    NHS frontline staff have risked their lives over the last year and deserve better. Liberal Democrats are campaigning for a decent pay rise for our NHS heroes.

    Human rights matter. For British soldiers, Hillsborough families and victims of the Stafford hospital scandal, the Human Rights Act has been vital to securing justice.

    It empowers us, ordinary people, to challenge the government in court to uphold their rights. It's a fundamentally good and liberal piece of legislation that has protected the rights of us all.

    During this pandemic, millions of people have stepped up heroically to look after elderly, disabled and vulnerable people.

    Most carers are simply exhausted during coronavirus. Most haven't had a single break since the pandemic began.

    A recent survey by Carers UK found that 81% of carers are spending more time on their caring responsibilities during the pandemic, mainly because the needs of the person they are caring for have increased or because the local care services they rely on have been reduced or closed.
