    Key aspects of the Liberal Democrat London Assembly budget amendment include:

    has been confirmed that the Mayor of London failed to respond to a recent Home Office consultation on proposed changes to firearm licence fees, despite the fact that nearly all Police and Crime Commissioners around the country have long advocated changes to the fees to ensure that vital police resources are not drained away by subsiding the licensing system.

    Research shows that one in four people will suffer from mental health problems at some point in their lives, however there is still stigma and discrimination surrounding mental health. The Liberal Democrats believe that mental health should never be ignored or stigmatised. That's why we are committed to improving mental health services in Ealing, London and nationwide.

    There are many reasons why people suffer short or long term incidences of mental health problems. These include a loss of their job, when family or social relationships change, developing a physical health condition. Not feeling you can talk about problems with someone, can mean we "bottle up" emotions which often intensifies our perception of a difficult issue. Many voluntary groups organise and run groups which provide residents a chance to talk and take away people's "load from their shoulders". Many of these groups help reduce potential mental health problems without aiming to do so.

    Labour's national campaign about the NHS contrasts with the Labour party locally, who are more than prepared to close important local facilities. Ealing Council over the past few years has closed a number of day centres, affecting many people's mental health. Closing more facilities like Ealing's Solace and the Carton Road Day Centre in the Acton area, will mean more users suffer.

    In Southfield Ward Focus

    I hope you have had a happy festive break. In our first monthly newsletter of the year you can read about a prize that the Southfield Primary School won as well as some bad news concerning the Carlton Road Day Centre.

    Carlton Road Day Centre - we will continue the fight!
    After a specially organised meeting to review the possible closure of five day centres such as the Carlton Road Day Centre, prompted by the Liberal Democrats, Labour-run Ealing Council have pressed ahead with their plans to close the Carlton Road day centre.

    Jon Ball, Parliamentary Spokesperson, said: "Despite the Council committee voting to close the Carlton Road Day Centre, we will continue the fight. We are working out a plan to ensure that the well run day centre can continue. We believe it is totally wrong to close day centres which provide care for the most vulnerable users in the borough. If you would like to help our campaign please email me."

    Stephen Knight AM, Liberal Democrat London Assembly environment spokesperson, commenting on the news that Oxford Street has already exceeded the annually permitted number of breaches of the hourly nitrogen dioxide (NO2) pollution limit value, with Brixton Road expected to do so as well, said:

    "For an annual limit on air pollution to be breached within just a few days is a clear demonstration that real action needs to be taken to tackle air pollution.

    As the current year comes to an end I have looked forward to the promise that 2015 brings.

    Sadly I fear that life for many people in Ealing will not fulfill that promise and indeed could be worse than it has been. The reason for this, are the range of cuts that Labour run Ealing Council have recently announced including the closure of many day centres and the introduction of fortnightly collections of waste.

    By announcing fortnightly refuse and recycling collection when they were adamant during the May local election campaign that there would not be such a change, Labour have shown what little respect they have for the residents of this Borough. Liberal Democrat Sutton Council guaranteed the funding for weekly waste collections until 2018!
