Conference: 12th September deadline looms

To all conference reps and local parties – please note that 12 noon on Wednesday 12 September is the deadline for:

  • Emergency motions
  • Amendments to those motions still open for amendment
  • ‘Urgent issue’ discussions
  • Questions to party reports (which are available online here)
  • The first two in the list can be submitted by any 10 conference reps, local parties, SAOs, etc; the last two by any one conference rep.

    Just to remind people, because the procedure is still relatively new – ‘urgent issues’ are topics suggested for a general discussion without a vote at the end. There are two slots reserved for them at conference. They’re suitably for very topical and quite broad issues on which the party may not yet be ready for a decision – previous examples have included issues around citizenship in multicultural Britain; gun crime; and peak oil.

    Emergency motions, and amendments, should be send to [email protected]; questions to reports to [email protected]; and urgent issues to [email protected].
