As you may be aware, last month the Liberal Democrats were unfairly accused of attempting to remove the student council tax exemption. However, it was in fact Sheffield MP Clive Betts (Labour) who unsuccessfully tried to amend a bill in the House of Commons to remove student exemption.
Sheffield Liberal Youth are keen to set the record straight on this issue. So next Monday (23rd April) they plan to hand out flyers at Sheffield University and then march down to Clive Betts Office in the city centre. Can you join them? Find out more here.
Remember we are always keen to hear what you have been up to so if you have any campaigns that need support, get in touch with Callum and Ben, our campaigns team, at firstname.lastname@example.org
