    In this year's local elections, EU Citizens can vote. For many of them, it'll be their one and only chance to make their voice heard on Brexit at the ballot box.

    And in many places, winning the EU citizen's vote could be a big boost to a Liberal Democrat campaign.

    More than 100,000 patients this winter had to wait in the back of an ambulance for at least 30 minutes due to overcrowding.

    Those figures are absolutely shocking.

    They provide yet more evidence that our NHS is at breaking point.

    The government must act immediately to find a long-term solution to this unacceptable situation. Patients and hard-working staff are paying the price for the Government's repeated failure to act effectively.

    The government were well aware that the winter-crisis period was approaching.

    If Brexit wasn't happening, taxpayers wouldn't be paying yet another huge bill.

    The French President is able to demand £45 million because he also has the option of withdrawing co-operation over the special border control in Calais, as the UK withdraws from the EU.

    Parliament needs to be told when this money was budgeted for, and what guarantees the UK has secured in return, if any, for future co-operation on our border security.

    A Lib Dem amendment that would have forced the Government to publish impact assessments of either an agreement or no deal before a meaningful vote on the deal in Parliament has received cross-party support in a vote today.

    The Government narrowly avoided defeat, with 320 votes to 301.

    Let this be a warning to the Conservatives: they are not going to get the easy ride they expect in their pursuit of a hard Brexit.

    This is more evidence that the opposition parties will work together to avert the Conservatives' disastrous path to Brexit. We just hope this is not a one-off by the Labour Party and we urge their leadership to join us in this fight.

    The fight now goes to the Lords where the Government isn't close to commanding a majority for it's hard and damaging Tory Brexit.

    Today, Les Matheson, Chief Executive, Personal & Business Banking for RBS appeared before the Westminster Scottish Affairs committee.

    RBS (whose headquarters is in my constituency) has caused controversy in recent months by shuttering many of their rural branches, leaving many unable to access their accounts and struggling to manage their money.

    Figures released today show 1 in 10 nurses are leaving the NHS every year. The number of nurses leaving the NHS now outnumbers those joining.

    Nurses are the backbone of our NHS. The vital service and quality of care they provide cannot continue to be undervalued.

    It is little wonder nurses are leaving in droves and that they far outnumber new nurses being recruited.
