From 0001 on Monday 30 March, Parliament will be dissolved and so I will no longer be Member of Parliament for Brent Central.

It has been a huge privilege to serve as an MP in Brent. I am very grateful to the people of Brent for electing me three times, and also for the generous way in which so many invited me into their homes and into quite private aspects of their lives as they shared their story with me along the way.

Sarah Teather will stand up for local people in parliament

    Liberal Democrat Chief Secretary to the Treasury Danny Alexander has announced details of a plan to raise an extra £1bn from a supplementary corporation tax charge applied to banks to help finish the job of eliminating the deficit.

    The supplementary charge will be in addition to the existing Bank Levy. The Lib Dems will push for this measure to be included in the forthcoming budget. If resisted by the Conservatives, then the proposal will be in the party's manifesto.

    A cross-party group of MPs and Peers has recommended that the next government should introduce a maximum time limit of 28 days on the length of time anyone can be detained in immigration detention.

    The House of Lords last night passed measures to improve protections for private tenants from revenge eviction.

    Responding to the news that at least 300 migrants have today drowned after attempting to cross the Mediterranean Sea from North Africa, Sarah Teather MP, chair of the All Party Parliamentary Group on Refugees, said:

    "This is a tragedy, but European leaders can't simply wash their hands in the waters of the Mediterranean and deny all responsibility. People are fleeing war. War on our doorsteps. And our response has been to systematically close down the safe, legal routes for people to find protection and to scale back methods of saving lives.

    Lib Dem Communities Minister Stephen Williams has today announced measures to give tenants greater protections from rogue landlords. This follows a long campaign by local Lib Dem MP Sarah Teather and housing charity Shelter.

    In November, Sarah's Private Member's Bill, which sought to prevent landlords from using so-called 'section 21 notices' to evict tenants who make reasonable complaints or request repairs, was talked out in the Commons despite cross-party support for the measures.

    On Monday, Sarah Teather asked an Urgent Question in the House of Commons following reports that Boko Haram had killed 2,000 people in Nigeria.

    During the debate, Sarah said:

    "This weekend saw an inspiring and moving display of international solidarity in the wake of the Paris shootings, but while we were watching the horror unfold in Paris, hundreds or possibly thousands of civilians were slaughtered by Boko Haram in northern Nigeria, with very little international attention. While millions poured on to the streets in Europe in a hopeful, defiant march for peace, thousands of Nigerians fled across the border into Chad in fear of further violence, adding to the tens of thousands who have already fled to Chad, Cameroon and Niger and the 1 million or so people displaced internally."
