CLPD is also proposing a range of rule changes to be considered by Party Conference. These proposals can be found here (Word & PDF).

The deadline for CLPs to submit a rule change to Annual Labour Conference is 12 noon Friday 17th June.

CLPD write:

We are prioritising the first one in the document, that the Labour Party should decide which Labour MPs can seek re-selection, as we believe that securing justice for Jeremy Corbyn is a priority democratic issue. However, there may be CLPs where other proposals in the document are considered appropriate.

The Party’s current rule book is here as a PDF.

We would appreciate if you could let CLPD know whether any of these rule changes are being pursued in your CLP and the progress being made. Please email us at: info@clpd.org.uk.

If you know of Labour members who would like to receive NEC reports and occasional important material from the Campaign for Labour Party Democracy (CLPD), please let them know that they can sign up for CLPD’s emails here.
