The Liberal Democrats exist to build and safeguard a fair, free and open society, in which we seek to balance the fundamental values of liberty, equality and community, and in which no one shall be enslaved by poverty, ignorance or conformity.

LIBDEMS SUPPORT UNIVERSAL BASIC INCOME

What is UBI?

"a modest amount of money paid unconditionally to individuals on a regular basis; intended to be paid to all, regardless of age, gender, marital status, work status and work history"

Guy Standing, author of Basic Income: And How We Can Make It Happen

The Liberal case for UBI by proposer Adam Barnard published by Social Liberal Forum

And one of our local LibDem members spoke in support of the motion. Listen to Misha's speech

From Ed Davey, Party Leader:

"We never know what's around the corner. Coronavirus has shown us just how fragile our system is, and how easily it can fail people. From shielding people from another global crisis to rewarding informal caring, we need a system which prioritises social and economic resilience for individuals and for our country.

UBI is a huge step towards the fairer society we, as liberals, should champion. I couldn't be prouder that so many Liberal Democrats today voted to fix our broken system."
