On Saturday 25th September the 2021 Labour Party Conference gets under way. 144 CLPs have submitted the Labour for a New Democracy (L4ND) motion – the greatest number on a single issue in Conference history. They will be composited on the Saturday with any other motions on Electoral Reform – we are confident that the full effective sense of our motion can be preserved.

LCER will be an active presence at the whole Conference, alongside our allies in L4ND. As well as speaking at fringes, we’ll have a stand where members can check what is going on, discuss the future, and buy our exciting new merchandise. And as the dust settles, we’ll hold an informal drinks drop-in on the Tuesday evening for LCER members.

This could be the most significant Labour Conference in decades – I am thrilled and honoured to be a part of it. Keir Hardy’s Labour proposed Proportional Election for Westminster – Keir Starmer’s Labour must deliver it! Together, we can build a genuine new Democracy.
