Report of Labour’s July national executive Print E-mail
Wednesday, 25 July 2012

National Executive Committee, 17 July 2012, at 1 Brewers Green.

This meeting was held a week early to avoid the Parliamentary recess. It was mostly divided between reporting back from the National Policy Forum and planning for Annual Conference.

General Secretary’s report

Iain McNicol reported on his first year in post and the restructuring he has overseen. I asked about complaints I have had from members about the over-enthusiastic implementation by Party staff of Refounding Labour. For example, comrades in Essex had to fight off the complete abolition of their County Party, whilst in Nottingham we were told the new Local Campaign Forum couldn’t have ten delegates per CLP, it could only have four. Iain replied that setting up a Local Campaign Forum is voluntary, that it should be done by local agreement and that Party officers are there to help. He said that if anyone feels that Party staff are going over the top, to let him know. So if other members have concerns, please let me know and I’ll take them up.

National Executive Committee, 29 May 2012 Print E-mail
Sunday, 10 June 2012

The NEC met in the new London HQ at Brewers Green, a vast improvement on the windowless cavern at Victoria Street. We welcomed Sadiq Khan, who replaces Peter Hain in the shadow cabinet section, and thanked Peter for his lead role in Refounding Labour. Deputy party Chair Tom Watson takes over this responsibility, with the implementation group retitled as the community campaigning working group, while Angela Eagle will be elected Chair of the national policy forum when it meets in two weeks’ time. Three equality-based groups continue: on gender-balanced leadership, likely to report in 2013; on ethnic minority organisation, with recommendations due; and on complaint procedures, still to meet. It is assumed that all other aspects of Refounding Labour have now settled in.
