Below is the agenda for the Conference, along with each motion to be debated and information on other activities at Conference.


Party members have until midday on Wednesday 15th March to submit Topical Motions and Amendments to the Policy Motions.

Amendments and Topical Motions may be submitted by Local Parties, the Welsh Party Board or Welsh Party Committees, or 20 members of the Welsh Liberal Democrats.

Amendments and Topical Motions should be emailed to conference@welshlibdems.org.uk giving the name of the local party, committee or members who are submitting the amendment or topical motion.
