The process of producing these policy documents began with a working group who agreed a consultative document which was circulated to all 700+ members of the Penrith & The Border Constituency Labour Party. The documents were then re-drafted in response to the comments received during the period of consultation. Finally, at a full member meeting in September, the documents were agreed as the policies that the Penrith & The Border Labour party wishes to support.

We know only too well that it was free market economics that caused and worsened the effects of this crisis in the first place.
If we are to avoid decades of misery as a result of a long and deep recession, we must look back at what has and hasn’t worked and choose the better option. We must look forward to new radical solutions to resolve problems thrust upon us by these unprecedented challenges.
