If needed, here is a draft media line that local parties can use if asked about leafleting:
"Liberal Democrats will always put public health considerations first, but there was a brazen political attempt to stop elected councillors and volunteers from doing their job.
We have spoken with the Electoral Commission and National Police Chief’s Council at the highest level. It’s clear that volunteering in the right circumstances is both legal and right.
Essential volunteering and community work is at the core of what Liberal Democrats do in their community."
