    I have written an open letter to Dr Jihad Malasi, Clinical Chair, NHS Thanet Clinical Commissioning Group asking him not to agree the proposal at the meeting of the Joint Kent & Medway CCGs on Thursday 14th February to make a final decision on the reorganization of Stroke Units in Kent, Medway, East Sussex and Bexley, based on as yet unanswered questions from the Kent County Council Joint Health Overview and Scrutiny Committee (JHOSC). The content of the letter is below.

    After several years of sustained pressure from the Liberal Democrat opposition, Kent County Council has finally agreed to accept monthly payments for the Young Persons Travel Pass (YPTP) in the coming year. This will come a massive relief for parents faced with an inflation-busting £60 increase in the cost of the pass to £350 next year.

    Liberal Democrat Councillors, Dan Daley and Rob Bird, have expressed huge disappointment and frustration at the latest Kent Highways proposals for North-west Maidstone. These proposals were unveiled at the January meeting of the Maidstone Joint Transportation Board.

    The Lib Dems have welcomed the proposal to increase the capacity of the Coldharbour Roundabout connecting the A20 to Junction 5 on the M20. The roundabout will be doubled in size and A20 traffic from the West will be able to use a new slip road to access the M20.

    The movement of livestock and access to Ashford Market is vital for many of Kent's farmers and smallholders. No-one wants to see animals stressed and their welfare threatened because roads around Ashford become gridlocked following Brexit

    Ashford East county councillor, George Koowaree, has asked what provisions are proposed to ensure that livestock can be transported to and from Ashford Market. George put his question to MIke Whiting, the Kent County Council Cabinet Member responsible for Transport, at last week's council meeting.

    At last week's County Council meeting Lib Dems Trudy Dean and Ida Linfield gained the unanimous support of councillors for a motion calling for better support for prison leavers, many of whom are left desperate for food, warmth and a roof over their head.

    Many ex-offeners leave prison with a discharge grant of just £46, a derisory sum which has not changed for over 20 years. Unless they have support from friends and family or they are able to return to paid employment, this is all they have to live on until they receive their first Universal Credit payment, which could take 5 weeks!
