Welcome to the website of Staffordshire Moorlands Liberal Democrats


Staffordshire Moorlands is the most northerly and most attractive constituency in the West Midlands. It is formed by the majority of wards of Staffordshire Moorlands District, as well as the Newchapel ward of Newcastle-under-Lyme Borough.

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.

    Last week a Private Members' Bill aimed at protecting young girls from female genital mutilation was brought to the Commons.

    The bill would clear up a loophole in the law. Currently, female genital mutilation doesn't count as one of the conditions for a temporary care order to be issued. This means it's harder to get at-risk girls away from families looking to mutilate their own children.

    Tomorrow sees two parliamentary bills become law.

    Two bills that the Liberal Democrats have been fighting on, to improve the lives of those living in Britain.

    Upskirting

    Back in June last year, my Private Members' Bill making upskirting a specific criminal offence was kicked out of Parliament by a Tory dinosaur - for no good reason. But we didn't give up.

    Despite telling Labour conference he would pursue a People's Vote if he could not secure a General Election, Jeremy Corbyn is now offering support for Theresa May's Brexit.

    His support is coming at the cost of people's jobs, our NHS and the environment - he's just missing in action. We've had enough.

    When the Liberal Democrats were in Government, I had the privilege of being Minister of State for Care and Support at the Department of Health. As Health Minister I worked to ensure that mental health was treated with the same priority as physical health, introducing the first ever access and waiting time standards for mental health. We also secured more money for children and young people's mental health services.

    I am pleased to announce today our new spokespeople who will speak out on the most important issues we face in Britain today.

    While Parliament is consumed by Brexit, we need to remember that people are also affected by a whole host of other challenges.

    We will continue to speak up for them as we continue our fight for the public to have a say on the Brexit deal with a People's Vote.

    As the battle over Brexit in Parliament reaches its final stages, many people are asking me, "what has happened to the People's Vote"?

    Behind the political manoeuvring and procedural wrangles at Westminster, there is still everything to play for. The People's Vote is alive and well.

    The next step to securing it is to narrow the options, by removing a massively disruptive 'no deal' from the table.

    Today is International Day of Zero Tolerance to Female Genital Mutilation

    Back in 2013 when I was a DFID minister, together with campaigners like Nimco Ali and Efua Dorkeeno, we kicked off the original government campaign on FGM. We succeeded in securing the biggest ever spending commitment in the world of £35 million to work towards eradicating FGM worldwide.

    Today is World Cancer Day.

    Half of the people in the UK will be diagnosed with cancer at some point in their lives. 38% of those diagnoses will have been preventable.

    But waiting times for cancer treatment are at the worst level they have ever been. Our NHS is struggling to diagnose rising rates of cancer. Thanks to Conservative mismanagement, it's recruiting fewer doctors, radiologists and nurses.
