In the wake of the general election result of May 2015, about 30 members of the Lancaster Branch of the Lancaster and Fleetwood Constituency Labour Party met for a Policy Discussion Meeting.
This document summarises the opinions expressed. 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 document is presented here in order to generate further discussion amongst Labour Party members and supporters, and amongst those whose support we have either lost or so far failed to attract, who are nevertheless concerned by the direction taken by the current government of the country.
The text has been prepared from the meeting discussions by John Whitehead and Nick Moule, respectively Chairman and Secretary of the Branch.
