Chipping away at the secrecy surrounding Liberal Democrat internal committees has been a regular theme of mine over the last few years, and more recently it has – due to a range of other factors too – become almost fashionable within the party to decry the secrecy.
At the last Federal Policy Committee meeting we had a discussion of how to report more widely on our work in future, with necessary safeguards but without undue obscurantism. The mood was generally good on this and there’s more work to be done, but in the meantime thanks to the staff at party HQ the first of a new series of reports back from FPC meetings is now available on the party website, behind the login for party members.
The report is up on www.libdems.org.uk documenting, as you can probably guess, our 1 December meeting. A report on the second meeting we had in December should follow in due course.
Do let me know what you think of it.
