  • Tom Brake, Carshalton and Wallington
  • Vince Cable, Twickenham (Liberal Democrat leader)
  • Alistair Carmichael, Orkney and Shetland
  • Ed Davey, Kingston and Surbiton
  • Tim Farron, Westmorland and Lonsdale (party leader 2015-17)
  • Wera Hobhouse, Bath
  • Christine Jardine, Edinburgh West
  • Norman Lamb, North Norfolk (who ran to be party leader in 2015)
  • Stephen Lloyd, Eastbourne (who resigned the party whip in 2018)
  • Layla Moran, Oxford West and Abingdon
  • Jamie Stone, Caithness, Sutherland and Easter Ross
