    It comes after Amber Rudd said the Conservatives did not know what a future cap on social care costs would be, while refusing to rule out that it could be as high as £200,000 or £300,000.

    The analysis reveals that:
    • If a cap was introduced at £200k, the costs of care for those with long-term conditions could wipe out over half of the value of an average family home

    The Schengen Information System (SIS II) is an EU-wide database on organised criminal and terrorist suspects across 28 countries, including 35,000 people wanted under a European Arrest Warrant.

    Tim Farron, leader of the Liberal Democrats, has announced that the party has suspended all national campaigning until further notice. Tim was due to fly to Gibraltar today as part of the general election campaign but has cancelled the trip.

    Tim Farron said: "The country is united in grief after this devastating terror attack. Just as the country is focusing all its thoughts on the victims and their families, so politicians should come together in solidarity and respect for the innocent people caught up in this vile attack.

    With the announcement of the Conservative manifesto today, Theresa May has shown her true colours. I've scarcely seen a colder, more mean-spirited agenda in my entire career.

    There's no doubt about it: the Nasty party is back. The Tories are hitting families from cradle to grave by snatching school lunches from children and homes from the elderly.

    The Liberal Democrats have launched their manifesto for a brighter future.

    Change Britain's Future is a plan for a fairer Britain where people are decent to each other, with good schools and hospitals, a clean environment and an innovative economy.

    Nothing is more important to our children's future than Brexit. A bad Brexit deal, with Britain outside the single market, will wreck the future for our children, our economy and our schools and hospitals. That's why at the heart of the manifesto is a commitment to give the people the final say on the Brexit deal in a referendum.

    As part of the coalition, the Lib Dems managed to secure 0.7% of Britain's gross national income for international development. It was one of our final acts in government, and it's one we're most proud of.

    Since then, 0.7% has been a legal requirement, which has prevented the Conservatives and UKIP from stopping these vital funds getting to the world's most vulnerable people.

    As part of the coalition, I was proud to introduce the original Shared Parental Leave programme.

    The Lib Dems campaigned hard for this transformational policy, that allows parents - instead of the Government - to choose how they share their childcare.

    Parents across the UK have already benefitted from greater flexibility and freedom, marking a massive step towards equal parenting.

    The Conservative government has given developers a carte blanche to play the property market at the expense of our citizens. And now the country's in crisis.

    Not enough homes. Properties sitting empty. Exorbitant prices. The market is closed and exclusive: a fat cats' game. That's not good for people and it's not good for business.
