Getting a better fiscal policy for the party: the amendment passed at the weekend

In my write-up of Liverpool conference I mentioned that:

There [was a] commitment made in the amendment I successfully moved to the ‘manifesto motion’ that once the deficit is cleared, the party wants to return to uprating welfare rates in line with inflation once again. (This was a negotiated compromise over the original 50:50 amendment which also strengthened the policy on protecting public services with taxes on pollution and the richest as well as stronger action on tax evasion and avoidance.)

Here are all the speeches in the manifesto debate, including my speech moving the amendment and Sutton councillor Jayne McCoy summating on the amendment (click on playlist in the top left and look for our names):
