    Birminham Lib Dems are urging residents to make sure they receive the £150 the Government is paying to households to help with the cost of living crisis. The money goes to households who live in a property in Council Tax bands A to D.

    If you pay your Council Tax by direct debit you should have already received your rebate or will do so shortly. However, if you don't pay your Council Tax this way, you need to apply for the payment. This can be done online here. If you don't use the internet or need help/support filling in the form, you can call the Council's Council Tax Team on 0121 303 1113.

    Speaking on the crisis in the Ukraine, Birmingham Erdington by-election candidate Lee Dargue, Lib Dem Councillors and Birmingham party members agreed:

    "We stand with the people of Ukraine and unequivocally condemn the unjustified and unacceptable invasion of sovereign territory by Russia. We also stand with the Russian people who oppose the actions of their government, but are not safe or free to publicly say so.

    "We fully support NATO and our friends and allies across the world in calling for an end to this invasion and to support the people of Ukraine.

    "War in Europe was something we believed consigned to history. We call upon politicians of all parties to join in condemning of Russia's actions, and for the UK to sanction Gazprom, Rosneft and other companies state-owned by Russia."


    Signed:


    Birmingham Erdington by-election candidate Lee Dargue
