    Earlier today, Lib Dem County Councillors voted against Surrey County Council's proposed budget for 2020/21 as it would put services to vulnerable residents at further risk.

    Will Forster, Lib Dem County Councillor for Woking South, said:

    "Almost every day I hear from families struggling with their child's SEND needs or trying to get care packages for elderly relatives. The County Council rations these services for vulnerable people and this budget makes that worse."

    I want to say thank you from the bottom of my heart to the 16,629 people who voted for me to become Woking's MP in December's General Election.

    Although I did not get over the line in Woking this time, the Lib Dems achieved our best result in a decade. We increased our vote share by 13%, slashed the Conservative majority to less than 10,000 votes, and secured 31% of the vote in Woking.

    The Lib Dem Candidate for Woking, Will Forster, has today challenged the local Conservative candidate to rule out a No-Deal Brexit in December 2020.


    The challenge, just a few days before polling day, follows Boris Johnson refusing to rule out a No-Deal exit from the EU.


    Under the Tory Party's plan, the UK will have until December 2020 to deliver the second phase of negotiating a Free Trade Agreement with the EU. However, the plans also say Boris Johnson will not seek any extension despite overwhelming evidence showing that the time-frame is near impossible.
