The Liberal Democrats can today announce that the location for the Autumn Conference 2013 will be Glasgow. It will be the first time the federal conference has been hosted in Scotland for more than a decade and looks set to be the largest conference to be held in the city since 2004.
Liberal Democrat Leader Nick Clegg said:
“I'm delighted we are taking our Autumn Conference to Glasgow, particularly at such an important time in Scotland's and the UK's history. Our party has always led the way in campaigning for devolution, and I hope coming to the city will remind Scots that we are committed to continuing that process and securing their future as part of the UK.Scottish Liberal Democrat leader Willie Rennie said:
“It will also allow us to recognise the contribution that the Scottish Party and our Scots Liberal Democrat Cabinet Ministers - Danny Alexander, Michael Moore and Alistair Carmichael - are making to repairing the economic mess that this coalition government inherited from Labour.”
“I am really pleased to welcome the Liberal Democrat Federal conference to Glasgow.
“Glasgow is vibrant and welcoming city and the SECC is a great venue for our conference.
“This is a really great opportunity for us to get our message out that Liberal Democrats are working hard in Government on the side of hard working people.”
