Labour Policies

This information is extracted directly from the Labour Party Website.

Labour’s purpose is fairness: fair rules, fair chances and a fair say for everyone.

In 1995 we set out our values in Clause IV of the Labour Party’s constitution:

‘The Labour Party is a democratic socialist party. It believes that by the strength of our common endeavour we achieve more than we achieve alone, so as to create for each of us the means to realise our true potential and for all of us a community in which power, wealth and opportunity are in the hands of the many, not the few.’

Those democratic values have guided us through twelve years in government: everything from the large canvas of economic stability, full employment and record investment in public services, to the fine detail of the minimum wage, free museum entry and civil partnerships.


Policy making in the Labour Party

Policy in the Labour Party is made through a process called Partnership in Power which is designed to involve all party stakeholders as well as the wider community in shaping party policy and support the relationship between the party in the country and the party in government.

Partnership in Power allows Labour to formulate policy and build towards our next manifesto over a three year period  while also ensuring a year-round dialogue between the party and government.

We have now produced our third year policy documents; members should visit the Partnership in Power section of membersnet for more information. The six policy commissions of the National Policy Forum continue to meet and will consider all submissions during their discussions.
