Policy Papers

Our Message

The Liberal Democrats exist to build and safeguard a fair, free and open society, in which we seek to balance the fundamental values of liberty, equality and community, and in which no-one shall be enslaved by poverty, ignorance or conformity.

We champion the freedom, dignity and well-being of individuals, we acknowledge and respect their right to freedom of conscience and their right to develop their talents to the full.

We aim to disperse power, to foster diversity and to nurture creativity. We believe that the role of the state is to enable all citizens to attain these ideals, to contribute fully to their communities and to take part in the decisions which affect their lives.

Policy Papers

The Federal Policy Committee is responsible for researching and developing policy and appoints Policy Working Groups to develop policy papers on particular subjects. The FPC submits these policy papers to Conference for debate.

The Federal Policy Committee has also submitted three consultation papers ahead of consultation sessions at Spring Conference.
