In his speech at the Liberal Democrat Conference in York, party leader Ed Davey has called for the UK to rebuild its relationship with Europe and received a standing ovation. Ed said that we must tear down the trade barriers with Europe. The Liberal Democrats in parliament had voted against the Conservatives botched deal when it was brought to parliament - and Ed highlighted that Labour had supported the original agreement.

Within the Liberal Democrat European Group, we are committed to working with our liberal friends and allies in Europe to strengthen this relationship.
