A meeting of the CLP is scheduled for Thursday 8 September, at TAAG Teignmouth. (While CLP meetings are suspended until the conclusion of the Leadership election, the NEC has agreed that a meeting may be held to consider essential Annual Conference business).
I wish to propose the following contemporary motion to go to Conference, and wish it to be placed on the agenda for this Thursday’s meeting. ( Note the deadline for receipt of contemporary motions is Thursday 15 September 2016 at 12 noon.).
A further Agenda item, also relating to Conference, is clarification of whether our CLP is to be represented at Conference, as Margaret Lynch (Compliance Manager/Nominating Officer for National Conference) stated on 31 August that ‘There is currently no delegate registered by Newton Abbott CLP for this year’s conference.’
Contemporary motion to Labour Party Conference September 2016:
Anti-austerity policies can deliver growth and a Labour victory
Conference notes:
1. The 9 August National Institute of Economic and Social Research report that Britain’s economy shrank in July, increasing the possibility of recession.
2. The cost of living continues increasing: the ONS reporting on 16 August inflation rising to 0.6% with sterling devalued more than 10% since June.
3. Austerity has not eliminated the government deficit, contrary to Tory predictions.
4. Instead, due to Tory policies, the economy has stagnated.
5. Living standards are declining – real wages down 10.4% since the 2008 financial crisis (the TUC reports), similar to Greece.
6. Labour’s successes this past year in forcing some Government U-turns on austerity policies.
7. Public opposition to austerity, which will have assisted Labour’s recent parliamentary by-election victories and Labour beating the Tories’ vote share at May’s local elections.
8. The widespread view of voters in 2015 that Labour lacked a credible economic policy.
Conference believes:
1. Government economic policy needs fundamental change. Austerity should end and public investment significantly increase to stimulate growth and raise living standards.
2. Labour should propose a £500bn public investment programme in: infrastructure, manufacturing, green and new industries, building 1m homes in five years.
3. A National Investment Bank should be established.
4. The government deficit should be cut by raising its income – by growth not austerity.
5. To succeed both economically and electorally Labour needs credible fiscal rules, borrowing for large scale investment whilst balancing the current budget over the economic cycle, as proposed by the Shadow Chancellor.

I too would like to know about the scheduled CLP meeting at the Monor House, Dawlish. I was going to come – my first meeting since re-joining the Party after so many years. Even if CLP meetings have been stopped, could we not have an informal meeting to discuss the situation?

I support Jeremy Corbyn. Will this month’s meeting go ahead, even though I have just read that all meetings have been banned? Thanks jayne Lenihan
