In the next five years, Britain needs Liberal voices standing up for our place in Europe, for our civil liberties, for human rights and for an open, tolerant and united Britain.

Will you be part of what comes next and join us today?

Vince Cable 2The Liberal Democrats have broadly welcomed the recommendations of the Matthew Taylor Review, but warned that the government's Brexit plans pose a threat to workers' rights and jobs.

Liberal Democrat Shadow Chancellor Vince Cable commented:

"These proposals are broadly sensible, they would both improve workers' rights in the gig economy and maintain flexibility for those who want it.

"We now need to stamp out abuse of zero hours contracts by giving people the right to request fixed hours, a proposal the Conservatives opposed during the coalition.

"Workers rights underpinned by EU law must be protected from an extreme Conservative Brexit.

"Ultimately, the drive to create more high-quality jobs depends on economic growth and attracting investment. Unless Theresa May rows back on her reckless Brexit plans, we will continue to see falling real wages, slowing economic growth and fewer jobs."
