|The recent events in Syria are cause for grave concern. The
massacring of innocent men, women and children by chemical weapons is a clear breach of
international law and moral standards.
I want to be clear, however, that Liberal Democrats are entirely opposed to any form of large-scale intervention, like we saw in Iraq. I believe we have to act with caution and great care and in compliance with international law. We must not become embroiled in a complex civil war.
The Government must now work hand in hand with other countries and within the international legal framework to consider the right way forward.
Local MP Norman Lamb Attends Cromer Carnival
This years eagerly-anticipated Cromer Carnival took place between the 17th and 23rd August. As always, the Carnival offered a wide range of events and opportunities from circus workshops, magic shows and live music to raffles, competitions and quizzes.
During his visit to the Carnival, local MP Norman Lamb took the opportunity to visit the stands of key health charities Kidney Research UK and Macmillan Cancer Support, as well as the Royal National Lifeboat Institute. The Macmillan Big Green Bus, which paid a visit to the carnival this year, offers mobile cancer information services and is a particularly valuable resource for those living in a rural area such as North Norfolk.
In between hearing about the valuable work carried out by these charities, Lamb also had time to enjoy the light-hearted elements of the carnival and even posed in the Kidney Research UK red arrows cockpit.
Commenting, Local MP Norman Lamb said:
I am always so impressed by the variety and quality of the events of Cromer Carnival and greatly enjoyed my visit this year.
The dedicated team of volunteers and organisers that enable this event take place are a credit to the fantastic community-spirit of Cromer Town.
I was particularly grateful to have the chance to visit both the Kidney Research UK stand and the Macmillan Big Green Bus during my visit to the Carnival. The vital work carried out by these charities both locally and nationally helps to improve the lives of millions; I would like to voice my whole-hearted support of all that they do.
