    By Sir Ed Davey MP

    I'd like to start by thanking my friend Layla Moran. Layla, you fought a passionate campaign, full of energy.

    Since becoming an MP, you have inspired so many people, particularly young people. Your future is bright and I look forward to you playing a big role in my team.

    To members of the Liberal Democrats, thank you for putting your faith in me and giving me the honour of leading a party I joined 30 years ago.

    Article: Aug 15, 2020

    Lib Dem education spokeswoman Layla Moran MP (pictured left) said "Gavin Williamson is an Education Secretary out of his depth and out of excuses."

    Layla received wide coverage in the national and local media, including the Slough Observer, for her call for Mr Williamson to step down from his role as Education Secretary with immediate effect.

    When asked by Acting Leader of the Liberal Democrats Ed Davey during today's PMQs, the Prime Minister finally accepted his Government will "learn the lessons of this pandemic" and confirmed there will be in independent inquiry.

  • Fighting for the 3 million excluded
    Article: Jul 13, 2020

    We have all heard too many heart-breaking stories from those who have lost their livelihoods overnight as a result of the coronavirus crisis and are entirely excluded from the Government's financial support measures.

    It is simply unacceptable that many individuals are ineligible for every kind of support, even Universal Credit, for entirely arbitrary reasons.

    Countless families are facing serious financial hardship due to the COVID-19 crisis. More than a million people have lost their jobs and many more are worried about losing theirs in the weeks and months ahead.

    We are also facing big challenges in deep-seated inequality and the climate emergency.

    We must ensure no one is left behind.

  • Ed Davey, Lib Dem MP: Carers Bill
    Article: Jun 12, 2020

    Coronavirus teaches many lessons. For me, one stands out: the importance of caring and carers - in care homes, supporting vulnerable people at home and millions of unpaid carers looking after loved ones.

    People who've never appreciated how the NHS and care sector needed to work more closely together have seen that all too clearly, with the tragedy of COVID care home deaths.

    We all want schools to reopen to more pupils when it is safe for them to do so. Our school leaders, teachers, school staff and governors have been working incredibly hard to already make this happen for some children.

    Our children's futures must come before party politics

    The safety of teachers, staff, pupils and their families has to be paramount, and we must always follow the science. The only thing worse than keeping our children from learning would be a second wave of the COVID-19 pandemic.

  • Delay Brexit to focus on fighting COVID-19
    Article: Jun 11, 2020

    The Government must not only be held to account, but step up and solve the crises as quickly as possible - and delay Brexit until they've sorted out the COVID-19 crises.

    After failing to provide adequate PPE, testing and public health advice, it's no surprise that public trust in the Government is waning. People have made heartbreaking sacrifices. They deserve to know the truth. The Government must commit to a public inquiry to ensure it does not repeat the mistakes of the past.The fact remains that a comprehensive test, trace and isolate system is still the only way to keep people safe as we move out of lockdown.

  • Delay Brexit to focus on fighting coronavirus
    Article: May 20, 2020

    Today we have introduced a Bill to require the Government to seek a two-year extension to the Brexit transition period, in light of the Coronavirus pandemic.

    To choose a No Deal Brexit and crash out, when the option to extend the transition is possible, would be an act of national self-harm - especially when our NHS, economy and food supply chains are already stretched and struggling.

  • VE Day
    Article: May 8, 2020

    On this 75th anniversary of VE Day we remember all those who put their lives at risk to defend our freedoms and defeat fascism.

    Paying tribute to the sacrifices made during the Second World War, Liberal Democrat Acting Leader Ed Davey said:

    "Today we honour those who made the ultimate sacrifice, as well as all today's armed forces who continue to sacrifice so much to keep us all safe. We cannot thank them enough for what they are doing at home and around the world today, defending freedom.

    "We must never grow complacent or be fooled into thinking that war is impossible.
