Labour’s policy making process is now starting up with the first meetings of the 8 Policy Commissions. The last cycle was cut short by the snap election – and who knows, this one might be too. But as things stand it’s an important opportunity to build on the last manifesto and the principles of the National Education Service that were introduced at Conference.
A summary of the policy process can be found at National Policy Forum 2018 and the 10 NES principles are at The NES charter. I would urge all SEA members and supporters to use this opportunity to have their say on how Labour policy should develop.
At the same time, the party’s Democracy Review is starting up. Details can be found at https://labour.org.uk/about/democracy-review-2017/
This will be a major topic at the next national SEA meeting which will be on 13th January at the Priory Rooms 40 Bull Street, Birmingham B4 6AF. The members meeting will start at 2.00 pm.
