    Today, revenge evictions have been outlawed after a long campaign by the Liberal Democrats. This news has been heralded by Liberal Democrat leader Tim Farron.

    The law, which was passed in March as part of the Deregulation Bill, will make any eviction invalid where the tenant has made a complaint about housing conditions that the landlord did not respond to adequately. Where a landlord gives notice seeking possession through a 'Section 21 notice' following a complaint about the condition of their home, it will no longer be possible to evict that tenant and a court must strike out any attempt to evict under those circumstances.

    Liberal Democrat MEP Catherine Bearder is calling for EU diesel emission rules to be properly enforced, after it emerged that Volkswagen is being investigated by the US Environmental Protection Agency and could face a fine of up to $18 billion for breaching US standards.

    The news comes after a report last week by campaigning group T&E found that 9 in 10 diesel cars in the EU are breaching EU pollution standards.

    9 out of 10 new diesel cars are failing to meet EU air pollution limits, according to a report published today by sustainable transport group Transport & Environment. This is due to manufacturers testing their new vehicles in laboratory conditions which do not reflect actual emissions of pollutants on the road. The research found that on average diesel cars in the EU are producing emissions about five times higher than the permitted limit.

    The West Berkshire Council Executive decided to bring in a new policy on Home to School Transport at its meeting on 10th September. The new policy means that secondary pupils whose catchment school is not their nearest school will no longer get free home to school transport. Alan Macro, Lib Dem leader on the Council commented "we think that this change is very unfair for the affected parents and we want the decision to be "called in" for review by the Council's Overview and Scrutiny Commission. The Commission has the power to ask the Executive to change its mind. Because of the Council's rules, we will need to get some Conservative councillors to agree to our request."

The judgement related to the case of a Swedish national, Nazifa Alimanovic, and her three children, who lived in Germany. Ms Alimanovic and her family had their social security benefits cut off after she and her eldest daughter stopped working.
