Policy (NPF, Policy Review)
Labour has two distinct policy processes: (i) those that go through the mechanisms of the National Policy Forum; (ii) the Policy Review run under the auspieces of the Shadow Cabinet. The relation between these two process has never been clearly explained. They are commonly assumed to be the same thing but this is clearly not the case (witness the Policy Review documents which have never been on the NPF agenda). Clarification from the Labour Party would be welcome but, at this stage, is probably unlikely to be forthcoming.
The NPF Annual Report to Conference 2014. This includes two sections on education. The document is presented as providing the basis for the election manifesto in 2015.
