      The Liberal Democrats have warned that Danny Kruger, Conservative MP for Devizes, is risking a "new Windrush-style scandal", after he voted to refuse to offer EU citizens physical proof of their right to stay in the UK.

      On Monday (19th October), Tory MPs overturned a Liberal Democrat amendment to the Immigration Bill, which passed in the House of Lords just weeks ago. The amendment would require the Home Office to give EU Citizens physical proof of Settled and Pre-Settled Status, rather than the digital-only system the Home Office is currently pursuing.

      Conservatives in the House of Commons rejected the amendment by 331 votes to 260.
      Danny Kruger was among those voting to scrap the amendment, while Liberal Democrat MPs and MPs in all other parties voted to retain it.

      The latest Home Office figures show that, as of the end of June,11,710 people in Wiltshire have applied to the EU Settlement Scheme for the right to stay in the UK after the Brexit transition period ends. 7,100 have been granted Settled Status so far, while a further 3,860 have been granted temporary Pre-Settled Status.

      Following the vote, Liberal Democrat Home Affairs Spokesperson Alistair Carmichael said:

      LOCKDOWN.

      March 16th: all non-essential shops in Greece are closed.

      Antiparos is about half the size of Guernsey, with less than a 60th of Guernsey's population. It's probably quiet anyway at this time of year. But now: you can hear your blood go round. It's rare for me to see anyone on my long walks around the northern headland.

      As the boat edges into Ermoupoli, things look....... different... Beautiful, pale houses curve like an amphitheatre around the harbour. Not the normal Cycladic cuboids. Ermoupoli went up in the boom years between the 1820's and 1860's, when the harbour was the new nation's busiest. Neoclassical architects. A more feminine, decorative feel to the place. I'm smitten.

      We are in debt to all the front-line workers who have put their own health at risk to fight this virus and keep us safe.

      It is clear that the Government could have done far more to protect our key workers

      Everyone must continue to do their bit and make every effort to stay at home, protect the NHS and save lives.

      'How do we make a difference?' That was the question the Party Body Review Group was asked to answer. Looking at the range of Party bodies, there was only one way to find out!

      As a Review Group we decided to ask those Party Organisations what they thought, where the gaps were, how they could make a difference to the Party going forward and how they might help one another. The Review captures their views, their potential and the opportunity for the Party as a whole to benefit from changes and how they and the Party relate to one another.

      More than 170 musicians have urged Ministers to organise paperwork-free travel in Europe for artists on tour.

      The extra costs will make many tours unviable, especially for young emerging musicians.

      The EU Trade deal makes it extremely difficult for touring artists because they now need a costly work permit and face a mountain of paperwork for their equipment.

      The Liberal Democrats are the most pro-European party in British politics. We truly believe that we are stronger together, and internationalism will always be one of our core values.

      That hasn't changed now that we have left the European Union.

      I am proud how we Liberal Democrats campaigned tirelessly against Brexit, and proud that last month all Liberal Democrat MPs voted against Johnson's dreadful EU Trade Deal - already proving so disastrous to small businesses, fishermen and the wider economy.

      Leader of the Liberal Democrats Ed Davey shared his relief that the new Democratic President will lead America back into the Paris Agreement.
