Labour’s draft National Policy Forum document has been published
and the deadline for CLPs to submit consultative comments (each CLP can send 600 words of comment) is 29 May 2023.
and click here to view notes on it which you can use when working on drafts for your CLP’s comments. (Thanks to Sacha Ismail for drafting these notes).
These notes are deliberately limited to piecemeal comment on areas where there is strong Labour Party or labour movement policy flouted or blurred to nothingness by the NPF document, as such comment is more likely to gain traction in necessarily brief CLP discussions to a tight deadline.
There are, of course, more fundamental problems with the NPF draft, all formulated within a framework which defines itself as “pro-business” and rejects even increased taxes on the rich, let alone socialistic measures. A few extra notes on those: click here.
