    Liberal Democrat Business Spokesperson Lorely Burt has called on Theresa May to clamp down on tax havens by setting them a deadline to open up their books, in the wake of revelations showing Amber Rudd was the director of two companies in the Bahamas.

    The Lib Dems have demanded that secretive tax jurisdictions like the Bahamas be given a fixed deadline of April 2017 to end shady arrangements that allow companies to avoid paying billions of pounds of tax.

    Losing membership of the single market would hit prices, jobs and wages and the Liberal Democrats strongly back Britain's continued membership.

    Two weeks ago, Jeremy Corbyn suggested Britain should give up its membership of the EU's Single Market - a position he shares with only the most hardcore Brexiteers.

    The single market means it as easy to trade between London and Berlin as it is between Edinburgh and London. Within the Single Market, goods, people, services and capital can move freely, meaning there's no lengthy customs checks, borders to cross and goods can move freely and cheaply.

    But seriously, I want to thank you for your involvement and responses to the challenge I put to you over a year ago to think how we could improve our Federal structures, and how we can work more effectively as a party. The thousands of suggestions and comment that you made to the Federal Executive have truly helped shape what came to Conference, and your contributions to the debates over the last four days has been genuinely helpful.
