    Unpaid carers are doing a remarkable and important job in very difficult circumstances. They deserve our support.

    But many carers are facing extreme financial hardship.

    900,000 full-time unpaid carers rely on Carer's Allowance - but at just £67.25 a week, it's just not nearly enough.

    In November, the Liberal Democrats launched a campaign calling on the UK Government to immediately raise Carer's Allowance by £1,000 a year, the same as the uplift in Universal Credit. To make this campaign a success, we need local parties up and down the country to make it part of their campaigns.

    This is the public health policy the Prime Minister should have announced before Christmas.

    But yet again, Boris Johnson ducked the difficult decisions, failed to listen to experts and acted too late.

    Just yesterday morning Johnson was telling parents that schools were safe and children should definitely go. Today he is telling us that they must all move to remote learning but without any proper future plan.

    Boris Johnson has completely lost control of the Covid-19 crisis.

    Boris Johnson's dither and delay continues to cost lives and livelihoods

    This government has abdicated its key responsibility, which is to make the tough decisions for the future good of the country. Over and over again, Boris Johnson has ducked the hard choices.

    It is clear that this is a bad deal that will make people's lives poorer.

    Liberal Democrats will vote against this deal

    So the Liberal Democrats will vote against it.

    This botched deal leaves the services sector in limbo and is the only 'free' trade deal in history to put up barriers and increase red tape, bringing long delays and higher costs.

    Today, we have tabled a series of amendments to the European Union (Future Relationship) Bill that demand the Government protect British businesses, the rights of UK nationals and ensure Parliament has proper scrutiny over the future relationship agreement.

    By allowing Parliament just a few hours to debate the trade deal he Government has committed an affront to our democracy.

    Having been rejected for the Autumn Conference, ALTER is supporting efforts by Andrew Dixon and others to promote progressive reform of domestic property taxes again at the Party's Spring Conference.

    The Fairer Shares campaign is promoting a Proportional Property Tax (PPT) which would replace Counci Tax, Stamp Duty Land Tax and the so-called Bedroom Tax (in England only - these taxes are devolved to Wales and Scotland) and lead to greatly reduced taxes for most households.
