Yesterday, Labour’s National Executive Committee (NEC) yesterday made the landmark decision to reinstate Conference delegates who had been barred from attending based on joining the party between 24/6 and 7/7 last year.
The first emails have already been sent to affected applicants confirming their eligibility:
A WhatsApp group has been set up to support delegates in finding accommodation or making arrangements.
However, a group of delegates has come to light that faces a further problem. Some elected delegates were prevented by their CLPs from even applying because of the cut-off date – and so are not shown in Labour’s Conference Services database and are currently ineligible for reinstatement.
It may not be possible to do anything about this in the short time remaining – but it’s worth the attempt. If this applies to you, email firstname.lastname@example.org by 9pm tonight (20 Sep) and we’ll see whether it’s possible to arrange something via Labour Party contacts.
