Policy discussions have centred on the party’s determination to give the country a further say on the terms of the proposed Brexit deal, as well as to opposing Govermnet plans to re-introduce grammar schools.

There has also been a push from leading Lib Dems in the South East to raise the plight of commuters suffering at the hands of Southern Rail.

Nick Perry, Hastings and Rye Liberal Democrat chair, said: “I have been very encouraged to attend this conference with a number of our new members and with a growing realisation that there is a real and important job for us to do in the centre ground of politics. Particularly given what is happening in the other parties.

“The country absolutely needs a decent opposition to Mrs May’s government. Local Liberal Democrats are ready and willing to play their part.”
