The UK National Policy Forum has published a series of policy consultations. This is part of the process towards developing a manifesto for the next UK general election.
Below are the eight consultation documents on key policy areas the NPF wants to hear your views on. Each consultation document contains some background and sets of questions for you to answer.
- Towards a National Education Service
- The future of work
- A greener Britain
- Tackling health inequalities
- Achieving Sustainable Development Goals
- Protecting our communities and turning lives around
- Addressing in-work poverty and working-age inequalities
- Giving people the power to shape their local communities
With devolution, a lot of the issues covered in these papers don’t apply to Scotland. The Scottish Policy Forum will start the policy process for the next Scottish Parliament elections in the autumn. In the meantime there is Neil Findlay MSP’s ‘Big Idea’ initiative.
Nonetheless, there are plenty of reserved matters to comment on. In particular the papers on the future of work and addressing in-work poverty.
