    The Lib Dems are on track to win seats across the country at the next General Election, including here in Surrey, following the historic by-election victory overnight in North Shropshire.

    The party won the once safe Conservative seat of North Shropshire, overturning the Conservatives majority of almost 23,000 votes. It is the second parliamentary by-election the Lib Dems have won against the Tories this year, following their victory in Chesham and Amersham in the summer.

    We were shocked that yet again Runnymede Borough Council have failed to deliver their Climate Change Strategy at last night's (Wednesday 17th November) Environment & Sustainability Committee. Promise after promise has been broken. No Climate Emergency has been declared (requested over two years ago) which would put the Climate Crisis at the heart of everything we do. We are committed to keep holding the administration to account and move Runnymede towards being a greener council.

    81,853 low income households in Surrey are paying too much for their broadband because the Government has not forced providers to offer cheaper tariffs, an analysis by the Liberal Democrats has found.

    So-called 'social tariffs', which typically offer broadband access between £10 and £20 a month, are only currently offered by some providers. But changes to the law that came into force last year mean that the Government now has the ability to force broadband providers to offer these cheaper deals.
