Policy Commissions

The next stage of work for Labour’s National Policy Forum (NPF) this year is to advance the policy framework set out in our 2017 General Election Manifesto. We want to hear your views and ideas on how we can build on the manifesto and develop Labour policies ready for the next election. 

At our Annual Conference in September, the NPF’s Annual Report showing the work done over the previous year was debated and agreed by Conference delegates. The NPF’s eight policy commissions held policy seminars, where delegates and Party members met with shadow ministers to discuss their views. We also held a ‘Policy Speed Dating’ session, where new Party members met with members of the shadow frontbench to discuss their ideas. Read more about the work of the NPF at Annual Conference 2017 here.

Our eight Policy Commissions will meet this autumn to consider policy ideas and submissions from members and stakeholders, including those heard at Annual Conference. Take a look at the Policy Commissions below and help build on Labour’s 2017 Manifesto by sharing your ideas.
