The Lib Dems in Hull have been leading calls for P&O and the Government to work together to keep the passenger route open between Hull and Zeebrugge to protect jobs and safeguard the regions tourist sector.
Earlier this week, they put in writing their opposition to proposals to close the route to the Chief Executive of P&O boss, also setting out their support for government intervention if needed.
Hull Lib Dem Councillor, and spokesperson for Public Health, Linda Chambers has slammed the Government’s testing failures that have led to some residents paying £225 for a Coronavirus test.
The private testing boom in the city has come as a result of the Government’s failure to roll out an effective test and trace system, not just in the city but across the country.
Hull's Lib Dem group has called again for a local test and trace system to be established for the area. Lib Dem Leaders in both East Riding and Hull City Council first made the call during the summer for a local set up to be established.
The Leader of Hull City Council Lib Dems has formally asked the council what progress has been made. This follows other Councils that have setup similar systems, such as York.
Lib Dem Councillors have worked with their community in Stroud Crescent to tackle and solve a recent bout of ASB.
The ASB started on Stroud Crescent when contractors came in to carry out cladding works to increase the energy efficiency of the housing blocks there.
Hull's Liberal Democrats have warned that the Government’s planning proposals will “disempower” local authorities like Hull City Council and allow developers to “run roughshod” over local communities’ wishes.
A motion agreed at the Party’s Autumn Conference, making it official party policy, lays bare the risks of the Government’s proposals, which the Party argue amount to a Government “power grab” that will reduce investment in affordable housing in Hull and elsewhere.
