    Liberal Democrat Health Spokesperson Norman Lamb announced plans today for a 'New Beveridge Group' of independent health experts to consider the case for a dedicated NHS and care tax.

    Speaking to party members at the Liberal Democrat Autumn Conference in Brighton, former health minister Norman Lamb called for "honesty and straight talking" on the cash crisis facing the health and care sector, raising the possibility of an extra penny on a new dedicated NHS and care tax. The proposal builds on his previous calls for the introduction of a separate health and care tax which would be marked out on people's payslips.

    Liberal Democrats are launching a cross party move to defeat the Government and give 16 year olds a vote in the upcoming EU referendum.

    We are aiming to follow up the successful vote in the Lords when they defeated the Government to include votes at 16 for council elections.

    Allowing 16 year olds to vote in general is something we have campaigned on for years. While allowing votes for 16 year olds in the referendum has cross party support, and even has the backing of the 'leave' campaign, increasing the pressure on David Cameron.
