European Elections – cancellation of local meetings until 23 May
All Labour Party meetings are cancelled until after May 23rd in order to campaign for Labour in the European Elections.
Local party units, including the Constituency Labour Party and its branches, are not permitted to conduct ordinary business (that is, non campaign-related business) during the period of a national election campaign.
As it stands, the UK is due to take part in the European Parliament elections on Thursday 23 May.
As a result, all non-campaign related Monmouth CLP, Branch and Monmouthshire LCF meetings between today and the election are cancelled . This includes Thursday’s All-Member Meeting in Cwmbran and the next Monmouthshire LCF meeting which was to have been held on Thursday 25 April.
The CLP’s Annual General Meeting, originally scheduled for Thursday 16 May, will instead be held on Thursday 30 May. The CLP will also hold an ordinary meeting straight before/after the AGM, at which members will select the CLP’s delegates to UK Labour Party Conference in Brighton (21-25 September). Information about this will be sent out soon in our regular members'newsletter.
