    Commenting on the earthquake in Nepal, Deputy Prime Minister and Leader of the Liberal Democrats Nick Clegg said:

    "My heart goes out to all the people of Nepal dealing with the after effects of the earthquake that hit the region this morning.

    Our work on your behalf can't afford to stop just because this is election time! We are writing to ask for your feedback on two things we have put in motion in response to suggestions you've made to us.

    First on residents' parking schemes and parking more generally. It's been suggested that it's n ot working well in some streets, and that possibly there should be a larger number of zones each covering a smaller area or number of streets. Also there are streets where there is not a scheme at present that may actually need one. We've asked for a review of this as a whole alongside particular streets or very specific concerns.

    Secondly on the possibility of a 20 mph zone near our local schools. That's always been difficult and longwinded to make happen, but recent changes mean that expensive and sometimes unpopular traffic calming measures aren't a necessity any longer. The next step is to see what you think, and a big positive reply in principle would help get the formal process started.

    So please do take a moment to give us your thoughts - you can email us at marconi@cmld.org.uk.

    Many thanks and with kind regards,

    Responding to Labour's announcement on private provision in hospitals, Liberal Democrat General Election campaign spokesman Brian Paddick said:

    "This is rank hypocrisy from a Labour party totally beholden to the private sector when in government.

    "Under Labour, private providers were paid 11 per cent more than NHS providers for the same treatment and their PFI deals are still costing the taxpayer £1bn a year in repayments.

    The Liberal Democrats have pledged a £10m boost for servicemen and women suffering from mental health problems.

    It would more than double the money currently available to help veterans overcome problems such as Post Traumatic Stress Disorder.

    The investment would also help provide a series of measures including assistance to get people back into work.

    The Conservatives are playing a dangerous game of "them vs us" to win votes with English votes for English laws.

    Responding to the Conservatives plans, Liberal Democrat General Election Campaign Spokesperson Brian Paddick said:

    "This is Punch-and-Judy politics dressed up as patriotism from a Tory campaign stuck on repeat.

    The Liberal Democrats have released a dossier that shows businesses, the City and markets all fear an economic lurch to the right or left.

    The document contains evidence from Britain's investment banks, rating agencies and economists expressing fears of a Conservative or Labour Government.

    It shows Britain's markets crave the stability and balanced economic approach fought for by the Liberal Democrats over the last five years.

    It's been revealed that the Lib Dems in government blocked Conservative plans to privatise our motorways and key A-Roads, which would have meant £120 charges for local road users.

    Shocking papers show plans to charge local people £120 just to use motorways and roads such as the A1, A30 and A303 - or be forced to use unsuitable minor roads through our towns and villages. This will mean that roads will be busier and more congested in our towns and villages.
