Welcome to the North West Hampshire Lib Dem Website!

Thank you for visiting our website and thank you also if you are one of the many people who supported us in the Borough Council elections last year.

For the Liberal Democrats, one of the most important things is to be accessible to local residents - all year round. We believe in letting local people know what we are doing and in actively involving people in shaping what happens in the local area. This website is a part of that - with a wide range of information about our campaigning locally and nationally.

If you have any suggestions of other information you would like to see on this website, please do e-mail us at info@nwhantslibdems.org.uk. We look forward to hearing from you.

    Cuts proposed in the draft Portsmouth City Council budget will see beds cuts from Portsmouth's women's refuge. A £57,000 cut has been proposed in the budget put together by Conservative, Labour and UKIP councillors in Portsmouth.

    Following discussions with the provider of the service Portsmouth's Lib Dem Leader, Gerald Vernon-Jackson has condemned the cut. "This will see beds cut at the refuge. These beds are almost always full, so if they are cut, women and children will have to stay in unsafe situations. As Lib Dems, we are opposed to this cut and we will find the money to keep these beds open."
