How We Are Represented: Democratic Reforms?

A discussion document from the Lancaster Branch of the Labour Party, February 2016

This is presented here in order to generate further discussion amongst Labour Party members.  It presents the briefing papers considered and summarises the opinions expressed when about 20 members of the Lancaster Branch of the Lancaster and Fleetwood Constituency Labour Party met for a Policy Discussion Meeting on 10 February 2016.  People took a variety of views, and inclusion in this account does not imply approval by all of the members present, or even by a majority.  The briefing documents and the report of the meeting discussions have been prepared by John Whitehead, Nick Moule and James Groves, respectively Chairman, Secretary and Treasurer of the Branch.
