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 elections in 2015.

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.

    Just about every government in the world, except Russia (UKIP's favorite), has expressed a view that it hopes Britain remains in the EU. This includes Commonwealth countries and allies in North and South America, Africa and Asia.

    President Obama intervened again last week by advising David Cameron in a phone call on Tuesday that the US sees Britain's interests as best served in the EU rather than outside.

    Norman Lamb has commented on the news that the Government is to force a new contract onto junior doctors. He said:

    "It is a mistake to force a new contract on junior doctors when there is clearly still such strong opposition to its terms. There is a serious risk that large numbers of junior doctors will leave the NHS to go and work abroad, which will have serious consequences for the health service and patient safety.

    "Growing demand for services, coupled with a funding settlement which doesn't keep up, are the fundamental problems facing health and care and yet the Government is refusing to take real action to address this.

    "The changes requested by David Cameron will require treaty change in order to be implemented. But it is also clear that the rest of Europe needs fundamental changes to be able to tackle the multiple crises it faces," says the Leader of the European Liberal Democrats (ALDE), Guy Verhofstadt MEP.

    "The European Parliament is open to the British proposals, but reform must be genuine and EU wide. We need to strengthen the governance of the euro zone, further improve democratic controls, ensure the Union has a real energy and an effective foreign policy."
