Lib Dems announce General Election candidate for Itchen

Southampton Liberal Democrats have selected their parliamentary candidate for Southampton Itchen, which includes Bitterne Park, and say they are “ready to fight to STOP BREXIT [their emphasis] when a General Election is called”.

Liz Jarvis, pictured, has been chosen to stand in the ultra marginal constituency.

In a statement she said: “I am determined to fight for better mental health provision for young people, and against cuts to the NHS.  I am passionate about Lib Dem policies on education, the environment, demanding better for our communities, and of course remaining in the EU.”
