Local Priorities


Health Care Service

Fight for additional resources to alleviate strain on Charing Cross and Hammersmith Hospitals, ensuring they have the necessary staffing and equipment. Work towards solutions to address waiting times at GP surgeries, including expanding operating hours and increasing the availability of appointments.

Hammersmith Bridge Closure

Collaborate with relevant authorities to expedite repairs and reopen Hammersmith Bridge, prioritising the safety and convenience of local residents. Work towards providing better options to mitigate disruptions, such as shuttle services or  improved public transit routes. Highlight the impact of congestion and pollution resulting from increased traffic diversion. Push the government to take a more active role in repairing the bridge by cooperating with the council and mayor of London. 

Safer Streets

Partner with local law enforcement agencies to develop community policing initiatives and increase patrols in high-crime areas. Engage with residents through neighbourhood watch programs and community forums to address safety concerns and develop tailored solutions.


National & International Priorities


Israel and Gaza

Demand an immediate bilateral ceasefire in Gaza and garner international support for restarting the peace process, aiming for a two-state solution. As Liberal Democrats we are clear that a lasting peace is the only way to guarantee the dignity and security which both Palestinians and Israelis deserve.

The EU

Brexit has been nothing short of a disaster for the economy and for the UK's standing on the global stage.Foster closer ties with the EU, the largest global market at our doorstep, and pave the way for potential rejoining in the future.

The Economy

Secure the UK's economic position by empowering and supporting our youth to achieve their aspirations and maximise their potential.Invest in cutting-edge technological advancements and provide top-notch technological training to our workforce, positioning the UK as a frontrunner in the modern global economy.
