    Or to be more precise, a new Deputy Leader of the Liberal Democrat Parliamentary Party in the House of Commons is to be elected.

    It is up to the party's MPs to decide whether or not to elect a Deputy Leader, and Tim Farron has announced that:

    "In the last parliament, we didn't have any women in our parliamentary party and we didn't feel it was right to elect a deputy in those circumstances. But I wanted to revive the role as it gives the party another powerful voice and has helped give prominence to many of our notable MPs, including Ming Campbell, Simon Hughes and Vince Cable.

    Across the length and breadth of Derbyshire, voters have the opportunity to vote Liberal Democrat on Thursday 4th May.

    Nationally the Conservative Government ties itself in knots over how to deliver Brexit. Locally Labour blame every cut on the Conservatives. At all levels the Liberal Democrats are becoming the effective opposition, seeking to drive forward a positive vision that will work for local people.

    The County Elections are rapidly approaching and Lib Dems across our Region will be working hard to win. Hold crucial seats and I make those all important gains.

    Here in Market Harborough Leicestershire we have two important seats which fit these aspirations. Harborough East has been held for some time by Lib Dem Sarah Hill and there is no doubt that the Conservatives will be doing everything possible to capture.

    So after 29 years of campaigning the doors are finally open on the New Harborough Hospital. The facility has been warmly welcomed by patients and staff.

    This morning I had a guided tour of the facility, met with patients and staff and bosses from the NHS. All were delighted with the building and what it will offer.

    In Bosworth we came a strong second to Conservative MP David Tredinnick at the last election. We have a good chance of electing a Lib Dem MP next time and ensuring the Lib Dems have a presence in the region again.

    We have two action days coming up this month in marginal Tory/Lib Dem county seats. It would be great to see you at them, even if it's just for an hour or two. There will be clerical jobs, stuffing envelopes, as well as delivery or canvassing whatever you are comfortable doing. Lunch will be provided.
