    Before being an MP, I was a teacher. I'm keenly aware that every day schools remain shut the disadvantage gap widens and the students in need of the most support from teachers and support staff are being left behind.

    How do we improve as a party and achieve greater success in future elections?

    Reports suggest that the NHS tracing app is set to be rolled out nationwide by end of next week, despite concerns about privacy and misuse of personal data.

    That's why we're calling on the government to bring forward a new "Safe Trace App Law", to ensure the Government's coronavirus tracing app is safe and effective.

    The Furlough scheme has helped protect jobs and it is something the Liberal Democrats have campaigned to protect.

    So we are delighted the Government has done just that and adopted many of our ideas.

    I can't believe it was a year ago I was elected as an Eastbourne Borough Councillor, the time has absolutely flown by. What a year it's been, and who could have imagined a year ago that I would be writing this during lockdown in the middle of a pandemic, a crisis affecting local councils across the country?
