LABOUR PARTY POST BANK EVENT – 23RD JULY, 6-8PM, WILSON ROOM, PORTCULLIS HOUSE WESTMINSTER
As branches will recall, earlier this year the Labour Party published a detailed report that setting out its proposals for a Post Bank, alongside a range of other policies on public sector banking.
The report was commissioned by the CWU in order to develop and promote the pledge to establish a Post Bank that we secured Labour’s 2017 manifesto and is available here: http://labour.org.uk/wp-content/uploads/2019/03/Building-a-new-public-banking-ecosystem.pdf
Setting up a Post Bank has long been a key policy for the union and the purpose of this LTB is to invite branches to an event on the report, taking place in Westminster on 23rd July, from 6-8pm in the Wilson Room in Portcullis House.
The event will be chaired by Rebecca Long-Bailey MP (Shadow Secretary of State for BEIS) and John McDonnell will be speaking about the proposals along with Laurie MacFarlane, one of the authors of the report.
We would encourage branches to attend the event to hear about Labour’s plans for a Post Bank and our campaign to secure the future of the Post Office and support the postal industry. A map for Portcullis House is available here at the following link:
