The Labour Party is a “social, democratic” movement. Much of what happens in the party is achieved by members proposing motions which are debated and voted on. Motions can be about all sorts of things, local council issues, expressing solidarity with a person, group or country, or proposing policies to Welsh Labour or UK Labour.
Any member of the CLP can bring a motion to the monthly All Member meeting where they will be discussed and voted.
Motions should be send to the CLP Secretary at firstname.lastname@example.org for inclusion in the agenda. If you are not sure and would like any help or guidance, or want to collaborate with others to put a motion together, please get in touch or come to a meeting.
We suggest that you try to make it short and clear and if possible use the following sections for your motion. It will make for easier for others to easily understand what you are trying to achieve:
- CLP Notes: i.e. “This CLP notes that….”, to set the context for your motion.
- CLP Believes: i.e. “This CLP believes….”, says how labour party values bear upon the issue.
- CLP Resolves: i.e. “this CLP resolves…”, says what actions are asked to be taken.
