Bournemouth Conference update

All the documents for the party conference in Bournemouth in September are now available on the party website – including the Agenda & Directory, Fringe Guide, Training Directory, Reports, four policy papers and three consultation papers.

This includes two policy papers which are still open to amendment – ‘Make it Happen’, the party’s new ‘vision and values’ paper, and ‘Shaping our World through a Strong Europe’, the European policy paper. The deadline for amendments to the motions which accompany them is as noon on Tuesday 9 September – and this is also the deadline for amendments to topical motions, emergency motions, urgent issue topics and questions to reports.

Conference kicks off on Saturday 13th September with consultative sessions in the morning; the full conference starts at 2.20pm that afternoon. As well as the debates on the four policy papers, conference highlights include Q&A sessions with the leader, and on economic and environmental policy, a discussion session on social mobility, a consultative session on the Party Reform Commission report, and, of course, plenty of debates and set-piece speeches. Also don’t miss the rally on the Saturday evening.

Duncan Brack is chair of the Federal Conference Committee (FCC).
