Liberal Democrats make change to policy-making process

The party’s Federal* Policy Committee (FPC) has just announced a significant change in the policy making process for 2007. It is setting up a new standing panel of people from which members of policy working groups will be picked in future. The panel will be put together once a year, replacing the old system of advertising for members of each different policy working group separately through the year.

There are more details on the party’s website, including an application form for the new panel;¬†you have until 22nd January to get your form in.

* For the uninitiated in the jargon, “federal” here means “UK-wide” as opposed to Scottish, Welsh, English, London or Crouch End.
