Fabulous, I found this in the new Rules, the new C2.II Individual Membership Rights

7.   Members have the right to dignity and respect, and to be treated fairly by the Labour Party. Party officers at every level shall exercise their powers in good faith and use their best endeavours to ensure procedural fairness for members.

I shall be seeking to amend this to include a mandate to abide by the Nolan Principals.

The rule text might look something like this,

Member’s Rights and the Nolan Principles

All Party Officers, staff and volunteer role holders are to be held to the Nolan Principles of selflessness, integrity, objectivity, accountability, openness, honesty & leadership

Chapter 2 Clause II.7

After Party officers, insert “, staff and volunteer role holders”

After “good faith”, insert “in accordance with the Nolan Principles of conduct in public life”

Replace “endeavours” with “efforts”.

To read,

7. Members have the right to dignity and respect, and to be treated fairly by the Labour Party. Party officers, staff and volunteer role holders at every level shall exercise their powers in good faith, in accordance with the Nolan Principles of conduct in public life and use their best efforts to ensure procedural fairness for members.
