LCF Update

As per the selection timetable, delegates of the full LCF will be meeting on Tuesday 3rd July to approve ‘the Panel’, the list of candidates who will be able to put themselves forward to stand for local government selection.

Throughout July and August, your branch will be holding shortlisting and selection meetings. At these meetings, members will choose who they want to represent their ward in the 2019 council elections.

Your branch should also have shared information on unconscious bias with members, however if you missed this, please have a watch of this video and read the supporting literature:


The Website

The issues with the website should now be resolved. For updates, information and information about policy forums, equality forums and your branch please visit our website here:

Safeguarding Members

Concerns have been raised over Safeguarding and Member Welfare. The safeguarding manager for the Labour Party has asked that all members of this CLP read through the two documents that I have attached to this email with regards to this matter.

The two attached documents are:

Labour Party Safeguarding and Member Welfare Policy (2018)

Labour Party Safeguarding Code of Conduct (2018)

As of conference 2017, all codes of conduct form part of the rules of the Labour Party.

I hope everyone is having a great summer and that you’ll find some time to come out on the campaign trial for the Labour Party.

Best Regards,
