An urgent call-out from Labour for a Green New Deal.
Labour’s Conference Arrangements Committee has ruled Labour for a Green New Deal’s motion out of order because ‘it covers more than one subject area’.
Last year we appealed the same decision and won. They’ve set a precedent to include motion’s of this scope and now they’re going back on it to shut down debate.
The motion calls for public ownership as a key plank of Labour’s Green New Deal – every element of the text relates to this demand.
This is a bureaucratic manoeuvre to silence members and undermine Labour’s democracy.
Write to the Conference Arrangements Committee to demand that they overturn this decision at appeal.
