It’s an intense first day of debate at Conference. Abortion, Windrush, animal welfare and power for people and communities form the policy discussions. The day ends with a debate on reforming the Party’s disciplinary processes. Have sufficient changes been made to satisfy those who referred it back in Southport?

Keynote speakers today are Layla Moran and Tom Brake.

    I want to know why the Saturday of our Party Conference is not getting any coverage on BBC Parliament. The coverage for Sunday, Monday and Tuesday is there, but nothing for today, even though we have some important policy motions and MPs speeches. Why hasn’t our Party leadership been taking this up with the BBC?
