The Labour party is committed to a bottom-up rethinking of its policies – involving everyone.
It has created eight policy commissions which are tasked with carrying out the detailed work developing ideas within their specialist areas. They meet regularly to consider the submissions made through the national website. They listen to evidence from experts, and are responsible for drafting the Challenge Papers and Policy Document.
The membership of each of Labour’s policy commissions is drawn from Labour’s National Policy Forum, the Shadow Cabinet and the National Executive Committee. It reflects all parts of the labour movement, including grassroots Labour Party members, representatives of affiliates such as trade unions, and elected politicians.
The commissions are:
• Stability and Prosperity Policy Commission
• Work and Business Policy Commission
• Living Standards and Sustainability Policy Commission
• Stronger, Safer Communities Policy Commission
• Education and Children Policy Commission
• Health and Care Policy Commission
• Better Politics Policy Commission
• Britain’s Global Role Policy Commission
Labour has invited everyone – members and non-mambers – to visit the Commissions on the ‘Your Britain’ site and contribute to the development of policy for the next election.
