Tuesday 27 October, 7.30pm

All Members Meeting. On Zoom.

Constitutional reform

Sarah Clarke from Unlock Democracy will speak on how they are building a movement of people from all corners of the UK who will demand a democratic society that centres equality and justice for all. They are demanding that the values we collectively share are enshrined in a new constitution that is built and owned by all of us. The new constitution will set out what rights and freedoms should be protected, and what the government can and can’t do in our name.
We will also be debating the following motion from Labour for a New Democracy
  • To call upon the Labour Party to reject first past the post, the voting system currently used for General Elections, and to support the introduction of a form of proportional representation in which all votes count equally and seats match votes.

  • To call upon the Justice and Home Affairs Policy Commission of the National Policy Forum to consult the party membership specifically about their views on Proportional Representation in the next cycle of policy documents.

  • To call upon the Labour Party to set out how it will select a new, proportional voting system for general elections, in time to offer it as a concrete alternative to First Past the Post in our next manifesto.

Zoom log in details will be in our news and events mailings.
