    The chaotic incompetence of a government that declares schools safe on a Sunday, sends children back for a day and then closes them is the sort of thing that should be the domain of political fiction.

    Sadly and tragically, it's the government we suffer from in Westminster. It is a reminder about how important it is that we recover as a party, and a spur to our efforts to ensure we do our part in defeating the Conservatives at the ballot box.

    Our intervention comes amidst growing concern for safety in schools, including headteachers launching legal action to force ministers to reveal data behind the decision for some schools to reopen.

    Time and time again, this Government has squandered opportunities to get ahead of the virus in schools.

    The Conservatives have consistently failed to support such a measure, risking future trade deals that could permit the import of food that fails to meet the UK's high standards.

    Farmers across the country are worried about their future

    This puts significant pressure on British farmers.

    Unpaid carers are doing a remarkable and important job in very difficult circumstances. They deserve our support.

    But many carers are facing extreme financial hardship.

    900,000 full-time unpaid carers rely on Carer's Allowance - but at just Β£67.25 a week, it's just not nearly enough.

    In November, the Liberal Democrats launched a campaign calling on the UK Government to immediately raise Carer's Allowance by Β£1,000 a year, the same as the uplift in Universal Credit. To make this campaign a success, we need local parties up and down the country to make it part of their campaigns.
