Norman Lamb: Developing a distinctive, progressive and Liberal agenda
Originally published by UK Liberal Democrats
"This is a key step in terms of future policy development for the Liberal Democrats.
"It is important to anticipate the likely challenges we will face as a country over the course of the next decade: improving public services, developing a green economy, supporting working families among many other issues.
"Thinking now about those challenges and developing policy to deal with them will ensure that the party is well placed to respond in the years to come.
"We want to be able to develop a distinctive, progressive and Liberal agenda for our manifesto in 2015. We will now get on with that work applying the values that guide our party."
