Another Rule change for Labour Conference; this moves the right of access to the membership list from Appendix 2, to Chapter 2. It clarifies that Women’s branch secretaries and secretaries of young labour branches/sections are to be given access to their appropriate membership lists. The guidelines as written state these branch officials should have access to the membership list. These words make it clear that this should be so.

Written for a friend ….

Insert New C2.III.6 The NEC shall issue procedural guidelines on issues relating to access to the membership system or systems from time to time.  These guidelines will ensure that the following members/member roles have access to the membership list,

A. For CLP’s: Vice Chair/Membership and CLP Secretary, or other designated CLP officers

B. For Branches: Secretary or other designated branch officer; this is to include Women’s Branch & Young Labour secretaries.

C. For LGC’s: Secretary or other designated LGC officer, where required for selection purposes

D. MP’s,, members of devolved bodies, elected mayors, councillors, Labour Group leaders on principal authorities, for the area they represent

E. Members of Party staff appointed by the NEC

Officers of relevant Party Units, elected public officials  and staff appointed by the NEC  shall be provided with access to the membership data or relevant party systems for the purpose of informing members of events, meetings and other activities or business relating to that role. It must not be used for the purpose of campaigning in internal elections, candidate selections, promoting personal opinions or collecting information and data for a third party i.e. through surveys/petitions.

This rule supersedes Appendix 2, Clause I J i & ii; these rules are to be deleted from the Appendix and this sentence expires when they have been so deleted.

Labour Party rules, women and youth administration autonomy.
