Cllr Kris Brown at the Excluded rally in Liverpool

Liverpool Council Lib Dem leader Cllr Richard Kemp, and Knowsley Council Lib Dem leader Carl Cashman joined Wigan Leigh & Makerfield Lib Dems chair Sharron-Lee Honey speaking at an ExcludedUK rally in Liverpool this weekend.

It was one of a series of events around the country to highlight the financial challenges faced by individuals and businesses entirely or largely excluded from government Covid-19 financial support - with around 3.8 million people affected.

Other speakers included our Regional Party Treasurer John Skipworth, and Liverpool's Cllr Kris Brown while other members of their local Liberal Democrat parties facilitated the march.
