We have a discussion “Let’s talk about the green new deal” arranged for 12th October at Acle Social club (Bure room) 10:30 to 12:30. Members and their guests can discuss what we can do and how we in the Labour party can move the discussion forward and make a real impact on the impending climate emergency.

There were many motions submitted for the recent party annual conference. They are all contained in the 125-page appendix to the Conference Arrangements Committee (CAC) report 1 (available here for the insomniacs). The proposed rule changes are contained in the 100 page CAC 1 report (available here).

Turning to the green deal, 136 constituency Labour parties and affiliates submitted motions on a new green deal – including Broadland CLP along with 80 opther CLPs who submitted the identical model motion. Delegates from all 136 constituencies and affiliates spent 6 hours on the Saturday evening and a further 4 hours on the Sunday evening negotiating and compromising to achieve two composite motions. Those two composite motions were:

Composite 17 – Labour’s Socialist Green New Deal

Composite 16 – Green New Deal

Both those composites were part of a substantial two hour debate on Tuesday 24th September. Rebecca Long-Bailey (Shadow Secretary of State for Business, Energy & Industrial Strategy) and Sue Hayman (Shadow Environment Secretary) opened the debate. Following the debate both composites were voted on and passed on a show of hands.
