What follows is the current Liberal Democrat frontbench team led by Vince Cable, who was elected to head the party on 20 July 2017. Initially, no significant reshuffle was conducted, so the line-up remains much as it was inherited from Tim Farron. However, Cable completed his first reshuffle a few weeks after the Party's 2017 Autumn Conference.[1]
