Help develop Party policy in two new working groups

The party’s Federal Policy Committee has recently decided to commission policy working groups on the implications of an ageing society (to be chaired by Paul Burstow MP) and on equalities (covering all the protected characteristics set out in the Equality Act).

These groups will be writing policy papers intended for debate at the party’s Autumn 2014 conference and will need to start work as soon as possible.

We are very dependent on the voluntary efforts of our members to bring their time, fresh ideas and clear thinking to our policy working groups.

I’d like members, especially those who can often be underrepresented among those applying, to consider putting themselves forward.

If you would like to apply to serve on either group please contact the Policy Unit on 020 7340 1394 or email mo[dot]saqib[at]libdems[dot]org[dot]uk to get an application form.

The deadline for applications is Tuesday 27th August 2013.

    I would hope that all SAO’s and AO’s have a seat at the table without having to apply? It would be rather odd to discuss equality matters without the involvement of the ‘interest groups’ with their vast knowledge, understanding and skills.
