The Liberal Democrats understand that, without successful businesses, we have no wealth-creation, innovation, creativity, tax revenues, skills or international standing.
Now is the time to set policies that deliver strong economic growth and jobs. The COVID-19 pandemic created an economic shock of enormous magnitude.
Our recovery coincides with damaging global trade disputes and the re-definition of all UK trade relationships, post-Brexit.
We will work to keep the UK as close to our nearest trading partners as possible, while providing certainty for businesses to plan for the future.
Given our pragmatic approach, the Lib Dems are “the natural party for business”.
The Liberal Democrats want to hear from businesses in Wycombe to understand the issues and difficulties that they are experiencing locally.
We will publish a summary of our findings only without identifying any individual business.

MPs have voted to permit same-sex marriage in Northern Ireland by a margin of 383 votes to 73. Wycombe’s MP Steve Baker was amongst the 73 MP’s who voted against.
Wycombe Liberal Democrats Equality Spokesperson Felicity Hazelgreen said:
“We are overjoyed at the result of the vote last night regarding same-sex marriage in Northern Ireland, but we are saddened that Steve Baker MP didn’t support this vital freedom for the citizens of Northern Ireland, as they have been consistently let down by their own politicians on this issue. The Liberal Democrats believe in absolute equality and so pushed through the same-sex marriage laws for Great Britain while in government in 2013. Mr Baker voted against same-sex marriage then too - it is a shame to see that he hasn’t rethought his stance since then, even though many of his colleagues have.”
Liberal Democrats are celebrating as they achieved their best ever result in the European Elections.
In a fantastic result spread across the UK, Liberal Democrats elected 16 MEPs. Our biggest team ever. This is a clear indication that people want to STOP BREXIT.
In Wycombe the Liberal Democrats came a strong second receiving more votes than both the Conservatives and Labour parties combined!
Liberal Democrats believe that every child should get a fair chance in life.
Councillors on Bucks County Council are proposing cuts to our Children's Centres. It will result in our 35 Children’s Centres in Bucks being replaced by just 14 Family Centres.
NONE of these proposed 14 family centres are in Totteridge or Micklefield.
This means we will go from having 2 centres to ZERO!
The Liberal Democrats are demanding better for our children and young families.

Wycombe Liberal Democrats have been talking with Micklefield residents about the car wash planning application that has been submitted.
Local campaigner Ian Morton said
“Residents are rightly saying that the proposed location for this car wash is not suitable. The proposal would site the car wash in a small car park right next to the busy Wycombe Marsh retail park junction. It would only take a few cars queuing to cause additional chaos at this busy junction. We are already concerned at the levels of air pollution in this area so anything that creates more traffic congestion will only add to the problem. Residents in Micklefield already have to queue too long at this junction at most times of the day so residents are saying “SUD OFF” to the car wash!”
