Here’s the question I’m submitting to the Report of the Federal Executive at the party’s spring conference in Sheffield:
The report makes only very brief mention of several important topics (e.g. the party’s KPIs and review into the general election, for neither of which are details provided). Overall it is far shorter than previous FE reports, with for example less than a third of the words of that from the first spring conference after the 2001 general election. Will the FE consider providing more substantive reports in future?
The Federal Executive’s report is being debated at 5:30pm on the Saturday in the main hall.
You can find all the conference reports here and the conference agenda booklet explains how to submit questions:
Any voting representative can submit a question to any of the reports of the Federal Committees and the Parliamentary Parties, included in the separate reports document. The chair will select which questions will be asked during the session.
The deadline for questions to the reports of the Federal Committees is 13.00 on Tuesday 8th March. Questions should be sent to the Policy Unit, preferably by email to questions AT libdems.org.uk, or by post to 4 Cowley Street, London SW1P 3NB. Please download a form from the conference papers page at www.libdems.org.uk/springconference. Questions will be detailed in Saturday’s Conference Daily – see page 8.
Questions on events occurring after the 8th March deadline may be submitted on speaker’s cards at the Speakers’ Table in the auditorium up until one hour before the start of the session.
