Liberal Democrat news
Tim Farron has welcomed the appointment of new Liberal Democrat Peers to the House of Lords and their commitment to fight for reform of the second chamber.
All of the newly-nominated Lib Dem Peers have confirmed that they have joined the House of Lords with the intention of abolishing appointments and introducing elections at the earliest opportunity.
Today Tim Farron has written to Harriet Harman, calling on Labour to stand with the Liberal Democrats in opposing Tory welfare cuts.
His letter comes a day after 184 Labour MPs abstained on the Government's Welfare Bill, which includes £12bn worth of ideological cuts, which the Liberal Democrats opposed in Coalition, and continue to oppose now. A copy of Tim's letter is below.
