MPs and Lords

Liberal Democrat MPs represent constituencies across Great Britain -  the Lib Dems do not fight elections in Northern Ireland. Our MPs also provide the public face of the party and lead campaigns in the media and around the country. They also have duties in parliament to hold the government to account by asking questions and voting on legislation and by sitting on various committees.

There are currently 16 Liberal Democrat MPs in the House of Commons.
