We are now onto the final formal session of the day. Delegates are now debating a series of reports by the parliamentary parties of the Liberal Democrats.
Activists vote to reject a proposal to a ban state-funded schools from selecting children on grounds of faith. The rest of the amendment - which includes calls for an end to the current legal requirement for all state-funded schools to hold acts of collective worship and for non-religious schools to hold acts of worship of a broadly Christian character - is adopted.
Women and Equalities spokesperson Baroness Northover says the movers of the faith schools amendment are right to highlight the issue - but she adds that such an important issue should be thoroughly examined and not "tacked" on to a wide-ranging equalities paper.
Summing up the debate on amendment three, Julian Huppert argues that everyone should be treated equally, but insists that religious discrimination still exists within the education system. The Cambridge MP says the amendment is not about closing faith schools or restricting choice, but stopping state-funded schools from selecting children and teachers on the basis of faith.
Stephen Lloyd MP and Justice Minister Simon Hughes also add their voices to opposition to "amendment three" - which says a ban on selection by faith schools should be party policy. Mr Hughes argues that with eight months to go before the general election "to pull up our policy on something that will cause huge difficulty for all of us irrespective of our faith or belief is absolutely not the thing to do in the middle of an afternoon with a half-attended hall and almost no notice".
Back in the main hall, Vince Cable makes his third appearance on the conference stage today - and apologises to activists for "hogging" the rostrum. He is defending the role of faith schools in society, as he appeals to activists to reject an amendment advocating the ending of admission on religious grounds. People should have the right to send their children to a faith school if they so choose, he argues.
Danny Alexander has said the government should consider commissioning housing if targets for building new homes are not met. Speaking at a fringe meeting in Glasgow, the Treasury minister suggested giving central government the power to build homes as a "backstop". "A truly radical approach would be for the government to also have a direct role in house building, not just affordable house building but in the private market also," he argued.
The current discussion on equality is scheduled to last until 17.15 BST. The day will conclude with a debate on party business, in which activists will discuss and vote on various reports of the parliamentary parties of the Liberal Democrats.
Belinda Brooks-Gordon is proposing an equalities paper which calls for "name-blank" application forms for public sector jobs, and the right to request part-time sick leave so people with long-term illnesses do not have to give up their jobs. The paper also proposes to legalise humanist marriages in England and Wales.
Nick Clegg tells activists he is comfortable with having a mixture of public and private organisations delivering probation services for offenders. He says the partnerships can be "beneficial" in reducing reoffending rates.
Nick Clegg continues his attack on his political opponents. He accuses the Tories and Labour of having "absolutely no interest at all in wholesale, coherent constitutional reform". He says the parties did not honour pledges on Lords reform or party political funding. Mr Clegg says Conservative plans for English votes for English matters is only being pursued for narrow political advantage.

Nick Clegg says the Conservatives are "dragging their feet" on drugs policy and accuses them of blocking a Royal Commission on drugs law reform. An official report on evidence from other countries is "stuck in the bowels of Whitehall", he claims, because his coalition partners "don't want to get the evidence out there".
Nick Clegg endorses the view of Lib Dem Home Office Minister Norman Baker that tackling drugs is a health issue - and says it should be moved out of the Home Office and into the Department of Health. He says the war on drugs "is not working" and argues that people with addictions need to be helped, not imprisoned.
A question on devolution now. Nick Clegg tells activists home rule will be delivered to Scotland "no ifs, no buts", and adds that "we should aspire to deliver home rule for Wales" too. He commits the party to finding a new funding formula for Wales, arguing that the Barnett formula does not "fairly serve" the country at present. Mr Clegg also advocates greater devolution in England, describing the country as "woefully over-centralised".
After a question on assisted dying, Nick Clegg says he understands the motivation behind campaigning for a change in the law but adds that he is not personally persuaded of the ability of the state to capture in legislation what is a "very delicate decision about the taking of someone's life". He says MPs and peers should be allowed a free vote on the subject, as it is a matter of "profound personal conscience".
Nick Clegg attacks Justice Secretary Chris Grayling's pledge to repeal the Human Rights Act and his threat to pull out of the ECHR as a "desperate attempt" to "curry favour with UKIP or at least scamper after UKIP". He accepts the need to reform the Strasbourg court - but let's not throw the baby out with the bath water, he counsels. Mr Clegg emphasises that human rights and civil liberties are "indivisible" which the Tories "don't seem to understand".
Nick Clegg is told he is about to be asked a question from Dr Evan Harris, a former Lib Dem MP, on the use of the Regulation of Investigatory Powers Act 2000. "Oh god", he jokes - but it turns out he agrees with Mr Harris - a past critic of the leadership - about the dangers of the police being able to access journalists' phone records and other information without judicial authorisation.
Nick Clegg is answering a series of questions on the environment. He declines to set out the Lib Dems' "red lines" in the event of a future coalition government - but says the party's 'green' priorities will be set out in its election manifesto. However, he makes the case for coastal paths to be extended and joined up around England.
In reply to a question on climate change, Nick Clegg insists that the UK cannot deal with climate change "unless we remain leading members" of the EU" - which meets with activists' applause. He surmises that the Conservative Party are "clearly now headed towards the exit" and says the Lib Dems must be "more forceful" in pointing out that leaving the EU would jeopardise jobs and securing a sustainable environment for future generations.
