Labour’s Rule Book

I have posted and try to maintain the most recent copy of the Labour Party Rule Book that I can find, this is also hidden in member’s net; this latter link requires a login and the search engines have difficulty in finding it.

I have also created a short name for the LP’s version, This copy of the rules is the 2018 rules, presumably authorised by lab17. Hover over the links to see the tool tips.  And here’s my old mirror of the 2017 rules just in case.

I found the NEC’s new Social Media Code of Conduct, which was published on Labour List and have posted here, >> Labour Online Code of Conduct, my mirror is available via a short code:

I have now found the Data Protection guidelines  and form used to commit users to data protection policy

I now have found the Party’s ,  London Region Rules dated 2016, which is the data of its last Conference.

And it seems you now need to read the Collins Review as part of the rules. My copy is behind the preceding hyperlink. I wonder if this is still true in 2016.

If you want to go back beyond Collins, there’s the 2013 Rule Book.

There is huge demand for the rules about the conduct of meetings; these are held in Chapter 15, here is a copy, LP Rules 2014 Meetings, Ch 15, as it says based on the 2014 version of the rules but I don’t think they’ve changed since then.

And now I have found the Lewisham LCF Rule Book dated 2012.

  1. I have uploaded the 2014 version of the Meeting Standing Orders. I don’t think they’ve changed since then. In actual fact the LP only publish their rules in a very odd .pdf version; it makes mining and indexing them very hard.

    I wonder if diigo could be used?

  2. I have put tool tips on all the hyperlinks to ensure the page is easier to use. NB There are two copies of the rules, one link to my cache, one to membersnet should you prefer or need the LP’s hosted copy. The latter needs a login/password pair.

    The Collins Report is held in my web space.
