    On Saturday 13th June, Plymouth Liberal Democrats hosted Wera Hobhouse MP for a Question and Answer session. The invitation was extended to other local parties and there was a good turn out for the online event.

    Wera, MP for Bath and Liberal Democrat Spokesperson for the Climate Crisis, has announced her leadership bid, along with Ed Davey and Layla Moran. Local members took the opportunity to ask Wera a range of questions to understand her vision for the future of the party. The session was chaired by local party Chair Sima Davarian, and covered a range of areas from party profile and a progressive alliance, to membership and PR.

    We enjoyed welcoming Wera virtually to Plymouth and look forward to future sessions with other leadership hopefuls. We will be posting further details following our forthcoming Q&A's with Ed Davey and Layla Moran.

    Voting in the leadership election opens on 30th July and closes on 30th August.

    A video of Wera's Q&A is available to view here.

    Devon and Cornwall Liberal Democrats have launched a petition urging the UK Government not to give in to pressure from Donald Trump to drop our high animal welfare and food production standards in exchange for a trade deal.

    We believe we should be cutting food miles and supporting our local farmers, not threatening their livelihoods.

    As a local political party, we have been paying very close attention to the unfolding developments concerning the new strain of coronavirus, COVID-19. The World Health Organisation has declared a global pandemic, calling for "urgent and aggressive action". Here in Plymouth, at the time of writing, we are fortunate that our city is still free of any confirmed cases. However, the City Council's Director of Public Health, Ruth Harrell, stated in her update yesterday that it is unlikely that we will remain so, and expects that we will see cases in Plymouth at some point.

    Thank you to everyone who has supported us, joined our campaign team and donated towards our efforts. We could not have done it without you.

    It has been a disappointing General Election outcome nationally. However, it was a privilege supporting Sarah Wollaston's campaign in Totnes. It is a huge shame that such a brilliant and principled MP was not re-elected as a Liberal Democrat. It was also a disappointing result for Danny Chambers in North Cornwall.
