Labour Party rules do not permit official Party meetings during election Purdah period. Due to the unexpectedly long Purdah period created by the European Parliamentary Elections being called and the relevant campaign & Purdah period starting before the Local Election Purdah period ended, most of our Branches were unable to hold their AGMs during mid/late May as planned. As such Branch delegates to the Executive will be notified at a later stage.
UNITE and Jewish Labour Movement (JLM) were confirmed as the two current affiliates. The UNITE Delegate is Sam Clements and the JLM Delegate is to be confirmed.
