Saturday, 19 August 2017 12:10

Contemporary Motions are one of the few opportunities that constituencies have to influence the Conference agenda and thus the Party's policy making.

Each CLP can submit a Contemporary Motion to this year's Annual Conference (closing date 12 noon on Thursday 14 September 2017), provided the CLP did not submit a rule change in 2017.

The title should be a maximum of 10 words and the motion a maximum of 250 words.

CLPD's model draft Contemporary Motions can be found here.

For new members, I will just explain what the ‘Clause V’ meeting actually is. It has pride of place in our party’s Constitutional Rules – “Chapter 1, Clause V - Party Programme”. It is when the party’s Mandarins get together to produce the party’s General Election Manifesto. When not in government, the Clause V meeting consists of the NEC, the Shadow Cabinet, the Parliamentary Committee of the PLP, the Leaders of the Scottish and Welsh Labour Parties, the Chair and the three Vice-Chairs of the National Policy Forum, and the eight Trade Union members of the TULO Contact Group. It is very encouraging to be able to record that almost all of the aforesaid representatives were in attendance.
