      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.

      The Federal Conference Committee met via Zoom call on Saturday, 16 January for the agenda selection for our second virtual conference. The meeting was a lengthy one, which was in part due to the large selection of varied and interesting motions we received, but also to give us breaks from staring at computer screens for a number of hours.

      The Government are refusing to accept cross-party amendments to the Trade Bill that would put human rights at the heart of our trade policy.

      The UK and the world can't just stand by and do nothing.

      This is particularly important because of what is happening to the Uyghur people in Xinjiang and across China. The Foreign Secretary last week described the mounting evidence to the Commons:

      Farmers across the country are worried about their future - they're worried that the UK will be flooded with poor quality food that undercuts the goods they produce to high environmental and animal welfare standards.

      Liberal Democrats back British farmers.

      The Conservatives have continually failed to protect our farmers from these risks.

      Monday started off with a statement from the Chancellor who has been notably quiet as of late. He came to the House to update MPs on the most recent packages of support for individuals and businesses during the pandemic.

      For years, this Government have promised our fishing industry a sea of opportunity, but, today, our boats are tied up in harbour, their propellers fouled with red tape manufactured in Whitehall.

      Our boats are tied up in harbour, their propellers fouled with red tape manufactured in Whitehall.

      Boats that are able to go to sea are landing their catches in Denmark-an expensive round trip of at least 72 hours, which takes work away from processors and other shoreside businesses in this country.
