Scottish Conference to discuss WASPI women, Exit from Brexit, mental health and gender neutral school uniform

Scottish Lib Dem Autumn Conference takes place next Saturday, 11th November, in Dunfermline.

There are keynote speeches from Willie Rennie and Jo Swinson and a dazzling array of debates and policy motions.

The Scottish Young Liberals have provided some excellent motions on getting young people more involved in shaping public services and on civil education. Also, a young member has independently put forward a motion calling for gender neutral school uniform.

Christine Jardine MP and Alex Cole-Hamilton MSP put forward West Edinburgh’s motion to support women affected by changes to the State Pension age.

Housing standards and mental health provision for rural areas will also be debated. 

You can also get training in door-knocking from one of the best – Willie Rennie, learn how to recruit volunteers and how to run a fantastic social media campaign.

Lunchtime fringes include discussions on mental health and how to make Scotland greener. The Scottish Young Liberals will be holding discussion with two of their members who were elected to their Councils in May this year.

You can find the full agenda here.

If you haven’t yet registered, you are in some very good company, including some parliamentarians who are proposing motions. But you’d better get on with it so do it here. 

If you fancy amending any of the motions, you have until 8th November to do it.

  • Actually it’s all health provision for rural areas. Serious issues in the Highlands and elsewhere. Check out the ‘CHAT’ and ‘Save Portree Hospital’ FB pages if you want to know more, or come and take part in the debate on the day. The debate is at the end of the day so please plan to stay and have a say. We urgently need action on all rural health care!
