Thames Water

The Liberal Party notes with concern increasing media reports on the long-term viability of Thames Water.
An urgently needed injection of fresh capital is reported to have been withdrawn by its shareholders as they believe the company to be no longer financially viable, saddled with a debt pile of over £18 billion pounds.
The Liberal Party rejects any concession being given to its owners over its refinancing, such as increasing consumer bills by 40% or a resumption or dividend payments as unjustified and unwarranted.
The Liberal Party has a well established policy of bringing the water companies back into public ownership. This would protect both consumers and the wider environment from pollution, over extraction and the wastage of one of the most precious of natural resources, fresh water.

Liberal Party Statement on the Cass Review

The Liberal Party welcomes the publication of the report produced by Dr Hilary Cass and her recommendations to NHS England in her role as Chair of the Independent Review of gender identity services for children and young people.

The report makes it clear that "the rationale for early puberty suppression remains unclear, with weak evidence regarding the impact on gender dysphoria, mental or psychosocial health" and that "(t)he effect on cognitive and psychosexual development remains unknown". The report also states that "(c)linicians are unable to determine with any certainty which children and young people will go on to have an enduring trans identity".

The Liberal Party's position on this matter has always been that there was no medical evidence to support the treatment of gender distressed children and young adults with early puberty blockers and hormones. Dr. Cass' report agrees with this position and further states that "(f)or most young people, a medical pathway to manage their gender-related distress. For those young people for whom a medical pathway is clinically indicated, it is not enough to provide this without also addressing wider mental health and/or psychosocially challenging problems".

In view of the findings of this report, The Liberal Party urges the Scottish Government to:

  1. With immediate effect stop all further medical treatment of children and young adults at by NHS Scotland, including but not limited to the Sandyford Clinic and private health providers.
  2. Publish an evidence based, clinically informed strategy to provide lifelong support where sought to all those children and young children that have been treated with puberty blockers and masculinising/feminising hormones to date in Scotland.
  3. Revisit the End of Conversion Therapy legislative proposal to incorporate the findings of Dr. Cass' report.
