Welsh Conference agenda announced – amendment deadline on 27th January

rally kirsty williams 1The agenda for the important pre-election Welsh Lib Dem Spring Conference has been announced. It takes place in Cardiff from 5-7 February and you can find all the details here.

It’s packed with keynote speeches – each of the AMs gets a slot, along with Tim Farron – and policy debates.

Not surprisingly, the manifesto and a motion on policing feature ahead of the Assembly and PCC elections. After some initial hesitation, the party has decided to stand candidates in all 4 Welsh PCC areas.

Flooding and a motion on childcare and education, reflecting the party’s success in persuading the Labour Government to introduce the Pupil Premium finish the first day.

Sunday sees debates on the European referendum, a members only election briefing and an IR Cymru motion on sex education.

If you want to amend any of the motions, or submit an emergency motion or topical issue, you can do so by 27 January. Instructions are here.

Fringe meetings cover the countryside, health and social care, small business, local government and, as always pre-election, the Electoral Commission will be there to answer questions.

It’s also worth mentioning that they have Lynne Featherstone speaking at their Conference dinner on Friday night.

They also have a very healthy exhibition, with stalls from charities, businesses, unions and party organisations.

It wounds like it’s going to be a fantastic weekend, so if you’re in Wales and you haven’t already registered, sign up here.
