    The newly elected Liberal Democrat MP for Tiverton and Honiton Richard Foord will use his first day in Parliament today to urge the Government to cut fuel duty for rural areas like Devon.

    Richard Foord will be tabling the parliamentary motion calling for a rural fuel duty cut immediately after being sworn in as an MP today. Richard is calling on Conservative MPs to put party politics aside and sign the motion to support families struggling with the cost of living.

    The Liberal Democrats have gained Tiverton & Honiton in a byelection that breaks records for the biggest majority overturned.

    We saw last year what a huge boost it gave to the party getting two new excellent MPs elected in Parliamentary by-elections. It's good for their constituents and also good for the party's prospects across the whole country.

    The Home Office has told over 100 people that they face deportation to Rwanda, with the first flight scheduled this coming Tuesday (14 June). Numbers listed for this flight are reducing but we need to keep up the pressure.

    Children and young people with family here in the UK are among those who face being sent 4,000 miles away to a country with a poor human rights record.

    The plan only works if airlines take the Government's money to help them carry it out.

    Most major airlines steer clear of deportations, thanks to tireless campaigning by grassroots groups and NGOs - most brands don't want to be associated with human rights abuses and misery. But some smaller airlines have refused to rule themselves out of this scheme.

    The Liberal Democrats have joined with Liberal parties from across Europe to condemn the British government's proposals to scrap the Northern Ireland Protocol.

    The annual ALDE Congress last weekend in Dublin called for genuine, workable solutions to the Protocol as opposed to the current ideological approach.
