The Conference Agenda has been finalised and is now available online, along with policy and consultation papers.

The agenda features a variety of debates including one on education (“Every Child Taught by an Excellent Teacher”) and another on corporate tax avoidance.

There are also Q&A sessions with Ministers on International Affairs, Green Jobs and Health and Social Care. Nick Clegg will do a Leader’s Q&A on Saturday 9 March at 15:50 and Paddy Ashdown’s sure-to-be-barnstorming speech as Chair of the 2015 General Election campaign is at 11am on Saturday 9 March.

Every motion in the agenda is open to amendment, and the deadline for amendments, and also for emergency motions and questions to reports, is 13.00 Tuesday 5 March. A standard form for emergency motions and amendments is available to download online. If you would like help drafting your amendment, the Policy and Research Unit staff are happy to provide comments and advice (on drafting only, not on political content). Send draft amendments to [email protected] by 13.00 Tuesday 19 February for advice.

And it’s not too late to register. If you’ve not booked your place already, online registration is still available at the conference website.

See you in Brighton!
