Policy Commissions

National Policy Forum 2016 - Tell us what you think

Representatives from across the country met in Loughborough in November for Labour’s National Policy Forum (NPF) meeting. Labour members, elected representatives and trade unionists representing millions of people discussed the challenges facing Britain, and how we can work together for real change.

The busy meeting of the NPF had a packed schedule of workshops and sessions where NPF Representatives identified the priorities for the next stage of our policy development process. The meeting also elected a new Chair and Vice Chairs of the National Policy Forum, and included special sessions on economic policy and the implications of exiting the European Union.

As we move into the next stage of the policy development process, we want to hear what you think Labour should be focusing on in each area of policy. Our eight Policy Commissions will soon begin meeting to consider your ideas and develop policy in their specialist areas. So take a look at the Policy Commissions below and help shape Labour’s next Manifesto by sharing your views.
