      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.

      Many disabled people have seen their finances hit as a result of the pandemic

      As we celebrate, we should also remember the economic and social barriers faced by so many people with disabilities.

      Recent figures for example suggest a significant number of disabled people have seen their finances hit as a result of the pandemic. And far too many have had services and support reduced or even withdrawn and feel isolated and overlooked.

      In reading this report, you may notice a certain similarity with previous reports. That is deliberate and, I hope, welcome. Because a relentless focus on priorities is required to ensure our party best helps people win, taking political power to turn our policies into improvements in people's lives. Trying to do too much means you end up doing nothing much at all.

      This World AIDs Day we have the opportunity to set ourselves an ambitious but achievable target: to end the transmission of HIV in England by 2030. Published today, the HIV Commission has outlined 20 measures necessary to achieve this worthy goal.

      As Liberal Democrats we have a responsibility to help make sure that we achieve it.

      Today marks Guru Nanak's Gurpurab, which commemorates the birth of the founder of the Sikh faith, Guru Nanak.

      Guru Nanak was a significant figure: his message of acceptance, compassion and community remains relevant even today.

      I have seen these values put into action by British Sikhs, be it through the practice of the langar, especially in gurdwaras, or through dedicated service in our schools and emergency services.

      The country is desperate to get life back to normal, particularly given how much has already been sacrificed.

      Time and time again, the Government has squandered the sacrifices the British people have made.

      But time and time again, the Government has squandered the sacrifices the British people have made through Ministers' unbelievable incompetence.
