Binding resolution to scrap Universal Credit passed by Labour Party Conference – #Lab19

“The Labour Party Annual Conference, the annual national conference of the Labour Party, is formally the supreme decision-making body of the Party”
Wikepedia: ‘Labour Party Conference (UK)‘ accessed 26/9/19

To understand above resolution it is best read alongside:

Universal Credit and Benefit Sanctions: All *new* Labour Party policies announced at the 2019 conference – Q&A

It remains very opaque how the Labour Party integrates such “supreme decision-making” resolutions into formal party policy and manifestos.

“Labour would axe the current “punitive sanctions regime”, though not necessarily all benefit sanctions.”
Mirror: ‘Labour considering plans to scrap Universal Credit in major shift at conference‘  – 16/9/19
