The Liberal Democrats in England

The Liberal Democrats in England is a federation of 11 Regional Parties, together with the Young Liberals, who are the youth and student wing of the Liberal Democrats.

The English Council

Each region, and the Young Liberals, elect representatives to the English Council, the governing body of the federation, proportionate to the number of members they have. Find out more information, including this year's meeting schedule and who sits on the English Council HERE.

The English Council Executive

The English Council Executive meets about 6 times a year to oversee the day-to-day management of the English Party between Council Meetings. At the first Executive of the year, both of the Vice-Chairs and Treasurer are elected, as well as the directly elected members for any of its four sub-committees:

  • English Finance & Administration Committee (EFAC) which is chaired by the Treasurer
  • Regional Parties Committee (RPC) which is chaired by the Vice-Chair.
  • English Candidates Committee (ECC)
  • English Policy Committee (EPC)

We can't afford more climate failures

We need politicians who genuinely care – ready to put in the graft and capable of taking the political initiative. No-one can possibly still believe the UK’s Conservatives are up to this. I am completely convinced the Liberal Democrats are.
