Labour Launches Members’ Policy Consultation

The Labour Party has launched its 2022 National Policy Forum consultation by announcing a series of online roundtable events for members to be held over the next five weeks.

The six discussion events will feature members of the shadow cabinet and cover broad policy areas such as ‘A green and digital future’, ‘Better jobs and better work’ and ‘Britain in the world’.

In announcing the initiative Labour leader Keir Starmer told members: “With a general election around the corner, we want to work with you to show how Labour can build a new Britain which guarantees security, prosperity and respect for all.

“We want to hear your views on how a Labour government can seize the opportunities and rise to the challenges of the coming decade.

“This Conservative government’s mishandling of both the Coronavirus pandemic and the cost of living crisis, as well as the devastation of the conflict in Ukraine, has reiterated the need for Labour to rise to the challenges we face both at home and abroad.

“The strength of our movement rests on hundreds of thousands of members like you.”

Members can register for the events online. They can also submit policy ideas and thoughts to the NPF website.
