What’s on the agenda for English Council?

There will be a meeting of the Liberal Democrat’s English Council on Saturday 15th June at University College London.

The English Council is the governing body of the Liberal Democrats in England. It meets twice a year to consider matters of importance to the English Party.

Alongside the usual reports from officers and representatives of the English Party on other party bodies, the main business of the meeting will be to discuss the results of the recent local elections and think ahead to next year’s European election.

There will also be a number of minor constitutional amendments to be approved. These are:

* An amendment to the English Party’s constitution updating the rules for candidate selection in the light of elected mayors and police and crime commissioners.

* An amendment to the finance section of the model constitution for local parties to deal with arrangements for online banking.

* An amendment to the guidance in the model constitution for local parties around the rules for internal elections.

You can find out more about the work of the English Party in my previous post What does the English Council do? and in the LDV English Council archive.

* Andy Strange is a member of the Lib Dems' English Council. He blogs at Strange Thoughts.

    It is actually a scandal that this small unrepresentative body can change the constitution of the party, for those of us who live in England.
