    The latest report from Shelter has revealed that 1 in 52 people living in the capital are homeless.

    That's thousands of vulnerable people forced to go without food, warmth and a roof over their head.

    Sir David Natzler, clerk of the House of Commons, has made comments that a Commons vote on a 'People's Vote' would still have "considerable political force".

    Only the Liberal Democrats are united in fighting Brexit.

    Whether a parliamentary vote on a 'People's Vote' amendment was legally binding or not, the PM could not disregard the result without a serious constitutional and democratic crisis.

    The result of the EU referendum changed an awful lot: the Prime Minister, the economic outlook, Britain's political discourse and our standing in the world. But there are 3.6 million people whose lives have been affected more than most. These are the citizens of other EU countries who live in the UK.

    It is heart-breaking that the epidemic of violent crime is claiming the lives of so many children.

    A senior police office has now revealed that children as young as nine are being caught carrying knives.

    We urgently need more police officers on our streets to restore the community policing that helps to prevent violent crime.

    The delay in implementing a planned and much needed reduction in the maximum stake on fixed-odds betting terminals is completely unacceptable.

    These machines are a blight on our society and undeniably damaging to vulnerable people.

    Philip Hammond tried to strike an upbeat note in his budget, declaring "austerity is over". Cossetted inside Westminster for the afternoon, he hid away from the storm clouds gathering over our economy.

    Brexit is making the situation worse.

    In truth, austerity cannot be brought to an end without difficult decisions involving an increase in taxation. Excluding the Government's promises on the NHS, maintaining real spending on public services will require an additional £19bn in extra tax and borrowing. And Brexit itself is making the situation worse.
