News from Nick da Costa, chair of the Federal Conference Committee (FCC), on the plans for emergency motions:

I am certain that many of you have been following the terribly upsetting news in Ukraine, following Russia’s invasion.

The Federal Conference Committee has agreed that due to the ongoing and evolving situation in Ukraine that we would allow a later deadline for an emergency motion on the topic of Ukraine.

The deadline for this will be Thursday, 10 March at 13:00. The motion will then be announced on Friday morning before the commencement of Conference. Any motions submitted already on Ukraine can either be carried forward to the new deadline, alternatively those who have already submitted emergency motions on Ukraine may want to consider withdrawing their motions and submitting updated motions for the new deadline.

You will be able to submit a motion via https://www.libdems.org.uk/conference_submissions

This will allow members to prepare and submit motions that may take into consideration the changing situation over the next days in the lead-up to Spring Conference.

The emergency motion will be debated in the Sunday morning Emergency Motion slot and the Federal Conference Committee will provide further information on this closer to the date.
