In difficult times, we are there to help you and that is why our councils are keeping council tax low, our Assembly Members have ensured additional funding for our most deprived pupils and the Liberal Democrats in the UK Government have successfully fought to ensure that you don't pay tax on the first £10,000 you earn.

Welsh Liberal Democrats know that times are tough and we use our influence wherever we can to make a difference.

You can find out more, including how to keep in touch or join the Liberal Democrats, on this site.

    The Welsh Liberal Democrats have announced today that they have secured a £223m two year budget deal that prioritises the futures of our children and young people, and helps to ensure opportunity for all from cradle to college.

    Central to the agreement is expanding the flagship Pupil Deprivation Grant. All schools in Wales will receive £1,150 per child on free school meals by 2016 to spend on improving the literacy and numeracy skills of our poorest pupils. For the first time, this Grant will be extened to under 5s to make sure our children get the best possible start in life.

    The Welsh Liberal Democrats are delivering for Wales' poorest children.

    Even though we're not part of the Welsh Government, we've managed to secure our flagship Pupil Deprivation Grant to support pupils from deprived backgrounds with reading and numeracy skills.

    Since we first secured this money, teachers have told us just how much of a difference it makes to the children who need it most. Higher reading levels, fewer children skipping school, a narrower attainment gap - all because of the Welsh Liberal Democrats.

    As Liberal Democrats we have never been afraid to stand up for what we believe in, even if that means standing against the crowd. At conference in Glasgow, the Federal Policy Committee will present its policy paper Doing what Works to Cut Crime, a paper that amongst other issues, revisits and has restarted the debate on drug policy.

    Nick Clegg has emailed Liberal Democrat members about Parliament's recall on Friday 26 September. The full text is below.

    On Friday Parliament is to be recalled to debate Britain joining the coalition of nations who have launched air strikes against the ISIL terrorist organisation in Iraq.

    Liberal Democrat MPs will be supporting Britain joining this coalition for three reasons. Firstly, the threat from ISIL to Britain has already been made clear by the sickening sight of British hostages being executed on television. Secondly, unlike the 2003 war in Iraq this intervention is legal - we are responding to a direct request for help from the legitimate Government of Iraq and Parliament will vote before any action is taken. Thirdly, we're acting as part of a broad coalition of countries, including many Arab countries, to deal with a real and immediate threat.

    The scheme announced today is very similar to the Welsh Liberal Democrats' own policy on individual pupil monitoring, passed at our conference in Spring 2013 (full details here).
