Clive will open the debate with an overview of key items from the report, we will then break up into groups for table discussions, to decide which parts we believe that Norwich Labour Party should take a position on. Each table will report back (concisely) at the end, followed by a summing up from Clive. The NPF report forms the basis of Labour Party policy. There are eight commissions focusing on specific areas:

Early Years, Education and Skills   |   Economy, Business and Trade   |   Environment, Energy and Culture   |   Health and Care   |   Housing, Local Government and Transport   |   International   |   Justice and Home Affairs   |   Work, Pensions and Equality

9.00pm           Mandating delegates for annual conference

Explainer: When the CLP send delegates to conference, delegates can either be tasked to vote according to their own preferences, or to vote according to how the CLP have told them (mandated). We won’t know exactly what will come up at conference, but, for policy issues where the CLP has a clear view (as established in our discussions earlier in the meeting), we can mandate delegates to vote in line with those views.

9.15pm           Contemporary motions

Norwich CLP is entitled to submit a contemporary motion to Annual Conference – that is, a motion which addresses an issue which could not otherwise have been raised through this year’s policy making process. See below for more detail, or click on this link – Contemporary motions 2017

Motions can come from a branch or from an individual member.

Please email these to secretary@norwichlabour.org by 9am on Monday 4 September so that they can be checked and included in next week’s newsletter, prior to discussion at AMM

We look forward to seeing you there!
