I hope there will be support groups organised throughout East Devon, and I'm sure our members and supporters will be participating.

Eleanor is District Councillor for Broadclyst.

Nationally our MPs are doing what they can to support and ensure the prime concern of government is to keep citizens safe. That means constructive scrutiny of decisions and support for necessary actions. The best decisions are ones that have been looked at from all angles, communicated clearly, and implemented well in a timely fashion.

    I'm honoured to have been elected by my fellow MPs as Deputy Leader and I'm champing at the bit to get started.

    Whilst Ed is touring the country listening to and reconnecting with voters, it's going to be my role to help build a campaigning machine that will get us winning again at every level.

    Our Remit

    The Federal Finance and Resources Committee (FFRC) is responsible for the budget and finances of the Federal Party and overseeing the administration of the Party. A key element of its role is oversight of compliance with external regulatory bodies.

    Last week we officially welcomed our newest member - Director of Strategy, Research and Messaging Mimi Turner.

    Mimi provided for us her perspective on the Party's strategic and campaigning position, as well as an initial summary of what we might do differently in future. There is much to be done but we are excited by the steps the Party is taking to get more Liberal Democrats elected and our newly elected Leader's listening tour.

    Liberal Democrat MPs have put forward measures to the Internal Market Bill that will remove controversial clauses that breach the Northern Ireland Protocol.

    Respecting the rule of law is fundamental to any self-respecting Government.

    The clauses in question allow the UK to unilaterally scrap "exit summary" forms for goods moving from Northern Ireland to Great Britain, and to apply UK state aid rules in Northern Ireland - contrary to what was agreed with the EU. A third clause seeks to protect the above changes from being considered unlawful.

    I've been a member for many years but like many others, I'd never taken the plunge and dived into conference.

    That all changed last year when I went to the 2019 Lib Dem Party Conference in Bournemouth.

    I didn't know what to expect, but before I knew it, I was meeting fellow Lib Dems from across the country, sharing stories, learning new tricks, and feeling at home with over 3,000 like-minded members who share my values.
