The Labour Party has published its plan for government based on decision taken at this year’s conference, setting out key commitments in four areas: economy, society, politics and Britain in the world.
Called Changing Britain Together, the 56-page document is designed to clearly spell out what a Labour government will do on a series of issues, each one containing key facts, Labour’s plan and a set of bullet point intentions, while 10 headline commitments – such as, ‘raise the minimum wage to £8 an hour’ and ‘scrap the bedroom tax’ – are listed at the beginning.
The party is asking for feedback on the document via the ‘Your Britain’ website to help it prepare its final election manifesto for next May.
In his leader’s message at the beginning Ed Miliband writes: “This isn’t our manifesto, because there is more to come and we want your ideas. But in setting out our priorities for Britain it should give you an idea of just how deep our commitment to change runs.
“It explains how together we can build our economy on the success of the many, a society based on our shared values and a politics that gives power away instead of guarding it.”
