Liberal Democrats

Respond to policy consultations

There are four consultations currently open on: a fairer share for all, crime and policing, health and social care and rehabilitation. Let us know what you think.

As part of the policy-making process, the Federal Policy Committee (FPC) routinely consults members so that your views can inform the development of new Lib Dem policy.

Three working groups have published consultation papers: these will be discussed at Spring Conference, or you can submit written responses. You can read the consultation papers here:

The deadline for responses is 10am Monday 1 April 2019.

In addition to the usual formats, there are web forms that you can use to read and respond to the consultations.  We'd be grateful for any feedback on how useful it is to have the consultations in this format.

Alternatively, you can respond by emailing written responses to policy.consultations@libdems.org.uk

There will also be surveys for each of these consultations available soon.

In addition to these policy consultations, Jonathan Marks (Lords Spokesperson for Justice) and Mike German (Spokesperson for Rehabilitation and Probation) have produced a consultation paper to inform a spokesperson's policy paper that they are producing on rehabilitation. You can read this consultation paper here:

Please send responses to this paper to mike.german@libdems.org.uk by Friday 3 May 2019.
