Layla Moran and the Lib Dem team are campaigning on behalf of local communities across Oxford West & Abingdon.

    School food has changed beyond recognition… many of us remember that in our day, the food was largely unrecognisable.

    We were dolloped up plates of grey matter, which hardly sent the taste buds into overdrive.

    Not anymore. Now menus are loaded with healthy food by kitchen staff who actually care about the dishes they serve.

    Liberal Democrat MEP Catherine Bearder has called on the EU to secure future funding for an international Ebola vaccine trial being led by the Jenner Institute at Oxford University.

    During the trial, which was launched last week, the vaccine will be tested on 60 healthy volunteers at the Oxford Vaccine Centre at the Churchill Hospital. If successful, the vaccine will then be distributed to high-risk communities in African countries currently suffering from the deadly outbreak.

    Local Liberal Democrats have welcomed the government announcement that they will provide funding for free school meals for children in their first three years at school.

    Although some children previously qualified for school meals, some do not take them due to the stigma, and others who don't qualify struggle to afford them. Research has shown that extending free school meals to all children will help remove these barriers.

    Evidence presented from the School Food Plan group showed that this will also lead to positive improvements in health, attainment and social cohesion, and help all over families with the cost of living. Over 22,000 families in Oxfordshire will benefit from this Lib Dem policy.

    Support the campaign for the new link road to be built before the Northern Gateway development is occupied
