Parliamentary Labour Party (PLP) Report

John Mann MP gave the report. John spoke of contentious votes and legislation, including the recent vote on Syria and future Bills such as the City and Regions Bill and the Trade Union (TU) Bill as well as the vote on Trident. The TU Bill is likely to be passed and will have an extremely detrimental effect on TU and Labour Party funding, notably because all bodies in receipt of government and local government funding will need to end ‘check-off’: the collection of dues through their payroll systems. He also gave an account of his engagement with members. 

European Parliament Report

Glenis Willmott MEP reported on a wide-range of European activity including: staff reps from Rolls Royce meeting the European Union Commission to lobby for R&D jobs to be kept in the UK; the Commission taking action in response to the Dying to Work campaign, and the steel industry crisis: the government could use state aid and use EU funding for workers but is not doing so.

EU Referendum: the Regional Launch of the Labour In campaign, led by Alan Johnson, was imminent; Cameron wants the Referendum to take place in 2016 thus is it is important to have EU champions to lead the In campaign in every Constituency Labour Party (CLP). There is no official Labour Out campaign. Party policy following Conference is to support Britain’s continuing membership of the EU. Workers’ Rights will not be protected by a Britain that is isolated from Europe.
