    This morning, the Office for National Statistics published a shocking set of figures. They show that 726 homeless people died in 2018 - a 22% increase since 2017.

    This is an epidemic that is claiming far too many lives, and the Conservative Government is completely failing to get to grips with it.

    We've done it. Parliament is open again.

    At the Supreme Court, we defeated Boris Johnson's illegal attempt to silence the will of the people.

    The message is clear. Boris Johnson cannot undo democracy.

    We need to do this because we can't trust the Prime Minister to obey the law.

    So what happens next? Today, Lib Dem MPs are back in Parliament to hold the government to account. Our priority is clear - we're going to stop Brexit.

    When human beings are persecuted for their sexuality, their gender identity or their beliefs - or all of these - and forced to flee their homes, we must do all we can to protect them.

    The Home Office's treatment of LGBT+ asylum seekers is appalling

    The UK has a long and proud record of providing sanctuary to refugees, but the Home Office's treatment of LGBT+ asylum seekers is appalling.
