Members of the Isle of Wight Constituency Labour Party (CLP) are this week attending the Labour Party Conference in Brighton.
Stewart Blackmore, has been in touch with news that a motion being debated today at Conference includes one agreed by the Isle of Wight CLP.
He tells us that the motion raises concern over the new Accountable Care System Contracts, announced in August, which will be run by the Trusts, provides for cuts in funding and break up the overall democratic control of the NHS.
What’s included in the motion
The motion commits a Labour government to a fully-funded, comprehensive universal, publicly-provided and owned NHS, an end to the pay cap and the restoration of bursaries for student nurses.
Julian Critchley told OnTheWight,
“There is tremendous enthusiasm at conference, especially from the delegates in the South East region where we hope to build on the doubling of Labour MPs we achieved this year. I look forward to hearing Jeremy Corbyn’s speech on Wednesday.
“While at conference I will also be raising the issue of Sandown Bay Academy and the ferry services with shadow ministers.”
