A Contributory Welfare System for One Nation Labour?
- 29th January 2013, 04:30PM
This seminar forms part of a series run by the Labour Policy Review team focusing on questions of nation. At the core of One Nation Labour is the idea that through the ‘people’ joining together and collectively working as a nation then Britain’s problems can be solved.
Liam Byrne MP will examine the ways in which this notion of One Nation can contribute to resolving the problems being experienced by a social security system coming under severe pressure and suffering from a loss of public support. The seminar will consider how Labour can regain support for a social security system in which risk is collectively shared and what role the principal of contribution should play in this.
Liam Byrne MP is the Shadow Secretary of State for Work and Pensions. Responses will be given by Graeme Cooke, Associate Director of IPPR; Ruth Lister, a Labour Peer; and Claudia Wood, Deputy Director of Demos. The seminar will be chaired by Jon Cruddas MP, Labour Party Policy Review Co-ordinator.
This event will be held on Tuesday 29 January in the House of Commons from 4:30pm - 6:00pm.
