    Liberal Democrat councillor Mo Fayyaz writes:

    Alan Bacon and I have continued our tidy-up campaign around our council wards.

    At the weekend, we cleared lots of weeds growing in the gutters and pavements around Fair Leas and also picked up refuse sacks of garden rubbish which had been dumped in the woodland at the end of the road. Thank you to the residents who came out to help and to Chiltern District Council who supplied bags and litter pickers. We have asked the Town Council to cut the grass on the island, and Chiltern District Council to send the road sweeper round now that the weeds have gone.

    Liberal Democrat Councillor Peter Jones is today launching the Chiltern phase of the Liberal Democrats' National Consultation on Brexit.

    Peter Jones will be contacting local businesses, health and educational institutions to discuss their Brexit concerns. Peter said: "This Tory Brexit Government has not got to grips with the multitude of difficulties that leaving the EU presents. While the Government flounders, I will be talking to people to understand their concerns.

    "Every sector of society will be affected by Brexit. I want to hear from businesses, service providers and local people about how it will impact on jobs, investment and our daily lives.

    "Liberal Democrats will challenge the Government at every opportunity to hold them to account for the real damage that Brexit will do to individuals right across the country, and here in Chesham & Amersham constituency. Together we will fight to keep Britain open, tolerant and united."

    Tim Farron, Leader of the Liberal Democrats, will make his fourth visit of the campaign to the Witney by-election as it races into its final week.

    He will be joined this week by two of his party predecessors, Paddy Ashdown and Ming Campbell, both of whom led the Liberal Democrats to major by-election upsets. Nick Clegg also hopes to make another visit.

    A life-long senior Conservative businessman walked into the Tory by-election HQ in Witney and told party staff that he could no longer support them.

    Instead, Geoff Lee has been knocking on doors for Liberal Democrat Liz Leffman. He was a senior international business manager responsible for negotiating hundreds of millions of pounds of trade deals for British industry.

    Geoff Lee said: "I no longer see the Conservatives as the party of business. Hard Brexit is really Wreck-sit.

    "Having seen both candidates at local hustings, it is clear that Liz towers above the much less experienced Conservative candidate."

    The report to the Environment Committee demanded that wildlife crime IS included in Europol's 2017 SOCTA (Serious and Organised Crime Threat Assessment), upgrading wildlife crime to a "serious and organised crime" as they have with terrorism, human trafficking and arms smuggling.
