Following today’s election for deputy leader of the Liberal Democrat group in the House of Lords, Navnit, Lord Dholakia will return to the role alongside Kate, Baroness Parminter.

Following a recently agreed structural change the deputy leadership has been expanded into two equal positions.

Commenting, Jim Wallace, the Leader of the Liberal Democrat in the Lords, said:

“I am very pleased to welcome both Kate and Navnit as my Deputies. Navnit has been my Deputy since I became leader and has served both our group and the wider party incredibly well over the years and I’m certain he will continue to do so in the future.

“I am also pleased that in Kate Parminter we have added a high calibre woman to the leadership team of the Lords group and the wider party.”
