Peter Willsman reports from Labour’s Executive - NEC Meeting September 18th 2018 Print E-mail

The NEC was quiet and pretty uneventful. I stirred things up a bit by reading out what our Deputy Leader had said on ITV’s Good Morning Britain. Namely – “We have hired a new general secretary….She has been in post for three or four months. If I come here again at Christmas and she has not dealt with it, then you may be asking me why she is still in post”. I pressed Tom to apologise but he did not respond. Jennie interjected to say that Tom and her had had a discussion.

Message from Peter Willsman

CLPD is its members are encouraged, where possible, to prioritise the Brexit motion (the first motion in the attached document),  to back up Jeremy Corbyn’s position.

Each CLP has been asked by Head Office to consider submitting a Contemporary Motion to this year’s Annual Conference (closing date 12 noon 13th September).

CLPD's suggested motions are attached here.

Every CLP has the right to submit one Contemporary Motion, provided the CLP did not submit a rule change in 2018.

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

Please do all you can to press a Contemporary Motion at your branch/GC/All Members Meeting/EC (in some CLPs the EC is empowered, given the short time period, to agree the Contemporary Motion for Conference). Good luck!

This NEC meeting was dominated by a very lengthy, very informed and very thoughtful discussion regarding the antisemitism Code of Conduct. In my 37 years on and off national committees, I can hardly remember a more sensitive and thoughtful debate. Almost every NEC member provided contributions. There was no attempt at point scoring and every participant spoke frankly and sincerely.
