Edward Lucas is the Liberal Democrat Parliamentary Spokesman for the Cities of London & Westminster.
It's LGBT+ History Month
As a local party, we are committed to building a strong and cohesive LGBT+ community that is safe, free from prejudice, and thriving.
To celebrate our Parliamentary spokesperson, Edward Lucas meets with Edward Lord, Chair of the City's Establishment Committee leading on Workforce & Inclusion Policy and member of the Policy and Resources Committee.
Together we reflect on Edward Lord's life since the 80s and how much change has occurred since that time.
We also discuss the various campaigns and techniques to drive forward change for the LGBT+ community.
Westminster City Council needs to ensure al-fresco dining can take place on every night of
the Eat Out to Help Out scheme. The gap between national and local government actions

We’ve today written to Westminster City Council asking for an impact assessment to be carried out to assess the risks to health and social distancing posed by very large numbers returning to the city as we come out of lockdown.
Due to the Covid-19 outbreak, we have ceased all campaigning and are asking our members and supporters to concentrate on non-political efforts to help the community weather this crisis. If you are volunteering, the advice from Westminster City Council is to help out as close to home as possible.
Here is how you can help:
