Following careful consideration of the latest health advice and risks, the Liberal Democrats have decided to cancel their Spring Conference this weekend.
Acting Leader of the Liberal Democrats, Ed Davey, said:
“In these highly unusual circumstances, we have come to the right conclusion to cancel conference.
“Although it will be disappointing to many members, the party can come together again when the coronavirus threat is over and debate the issues our country faces.
“Liberal Democrats will continue to put forward our case for a more liberal progressive Britain and hold this Conservative government to account.”
Frank Little, parliamentary spokesman for Aberavon, added:
"The Welsh Lib Dems conference at the following weekend must also now be in doubt, especially as Swansea was the site of one of the first Covid-19 infections in the UK. It is to be hoped that the Welsh party executive makes an early decision."
Update 2020-03-14: the Welsh spring conference has in fact now been cancelled.
