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.

    The Government has axed support that helps small schools with 150 pupils or fewer fund universal free meals for infants.

    In 2015/6 the money was worth at least £2,300 for these schools.

    Universal Free School Meals were a key Liberal Democrat policy delivered in the Coalition Government to provide every infant child in England with a healthy meal at lunchtime, saving families around £437 per child per year.

    The Liberal Democrats have made an official complaint over the content of UKIP's party political broadcast for inciting racial and religious hatred.

    The presentation and tone of the broadcast is focused on provoking negative and hostile reactions.

    The broadcast clearly uses images, music and misleading information to inflame racial tension - a direct breach of BBC and Ofcom rules.

    Liberal Democrat Spokesperson for Energy and Climate Change Lynne Featherstone has tabled a fatal motion in the House of Lords against the Government cuts to Feed-in Tariffs.

    The staggering 65 per cent cuts to Feed-in Tariffs will be debated today (2nd February). These plans will shrink the currently thriving solar industry by over half its size and put 19,000 jobs at risk, according to the Government's own predictions.

    The Commission has unveiled a set of proposals to crack down on tax evasion and avoidance, including requiring EU countries to share tax information about large multinational corporations with each other.

    The news comes amid growing controversy over a deal struck by the UK government with Google, which netted the Treasury just £130m in tax for an estimated £3.9bn in profits over ten years.

    The Liberal Democrats are the only party campaigning to keep Britain IN Europe. We believe in a Britain that is open, tolerant and willing to work with other countries to solve problems we can't tackle alone.

    But parties like UKIP, and the loony wing of the Conservatives, are trying to pull Britain OUT of Europe, putting our economy at risk and making it harder for us to tackle cross-border issues like crime and climate change. We need people like you to stand up for Europe.

    Article: Jan 28, 2016

    Whitchurch Liberal Democrats have chosen Steve Neilson to stand for election to Basingstoke & Deane Borough Council in May this year.

    If elected he will join exisiting councillor Keith Watts who was re-elected for a four-year term in 2014 so remains on the council until 2018. Liberal Democrats have represented Whitchurch on the Council continuously since Tommy Brooks was first elected in 1978.

    Conservatives in West Berkshire plan to reduce the amount that we pay in subsidies to public transport operators. They currently provide around £1.4m each year in supporting local bus services and are seeking to cut this by £320,000 next year.

    These cute will ruin some of our rural communities.

    In just one week we have had reports of the imminent loss of three important community facilities across West Berkshire: The Jubilee Sports Centre in Kintbury, the Youth Centre in Hungerford and Thatcham Priory, currently under development as a Town Centre hub for the community.

    I understand West Berks Council's current frustrations at the short-notice reduction in our government support but why, after 9 years in power, have the Conservative team and our MP not set up additional income streams to protect our public services?
