Following his appointment as a special advisor to Chris Huhne, Duncan Brack has stood down as chair of the party’s Federal Conference Committee (FCC). A key figure in the organisation of party conferences for many years, first as the party’s Director of Policy and then on the FCC, Duncan was Chair for seven years.
This extends a neat chronological sequence of Federal Conference Committee chairs serving for four, five, six and now seven years.
Duncan will be continuing as a member of the Federal Policy Committee (FPC) which I think will provide a welcome extra link between the party’s policy processes and the party’s role in government. (Special Advisers can continue with party activity in their own time.)
