Local Lib Dems welcome new leader

Liberal Democrats across Stockport have welcomed the election of Ed Davey as the Leader of the party and backed his plans for a National Listening Project.

In his acceptance speech, Ed Davey announced his plans to “get beyond Westminster” and speak to people across the country so they can tell us “what matters most to them.”

Ed Davey, who has been a party member for 30 years and was first elected in Kingston and Surbiton in 1997, won the leadership election with 42,756 votes.

Layla Moran, his competitor in the contest, congratulated him on Twitter, saying: “I look forward to working with him to campaign for a better future for Britain.”
