Liberal Democrat manifesto: guarantees for EU workers and stricter corporate governance

The Liberal Democrat Party's official manifesto has been released and includes a raft of proposals around employment rights, equality and diversity, and corporate governance.

One of the Party's headline claims was that it would offer a second referendum on membership of the EU if it came into power, but leader Tim Farron has also pledged to maintain existing EU employment rights and to "fight against a hard Brexit" if he becomes Prime Minister in next month's general election.
