Liberal Democrats prepare to go to conference

September 7, 2008 12:00 AM

LIBERAL Democrats in Hinckley and Bosworth are making their final preparations to attend the party's conference in Bournemouth in September.

Many members from Hinckley and Bosworth will be heading for the conference which will be held from Saturday 13th to Wednesday 17th September.

Debates taking place will include pensions, crime, eco-towns, the housing and mortgage crisis, transport and health.

"We are looking forward to a good conference and some lively debates," said Hinckley and Bosworth Liberal Democrats Chair Cllr Stuart Bray. "We are also looking forward to speeches from leading figures in the Liberal Democrats, particularly Nick Clegg's Leader's speech on the final day.

"People in Hinckley and Bosworth are feeling the pinch with rising unemployment, rising prices for food and energy and a collapsing housing market. So there will be a great deal of interest in the debate about the housing and mortgage crisis and in the speech of Vince Cable MP, our Shadow Chancellor."

The members attending from Hinckley and Bosworth include Cllr Stuart Bray, Cllr Adi Smith and Michael Mullaney.
