How to propose a CLP motion

Labour is a democratic movement. As members we have a right and duty to put forward a vision to beat Tory Brexit and win a radical Labour government.

More than 100 CLPs put forward motions to Labour conference this year. Your CLP can still pass a ‘normal motion’ using the guide below:

To submit the Normal Motion for CLPs

There are 3 ways you can submit a motion to your CLP:

  • If your CLP has meetings of all members (i.e. without delegates), you can submit it directly to your CLP secretary. You should be receiving emails from them already.

  • If your CLP has a General Committee and meets in wards/branches, you will normally need to submit it to your ward/branch secretary. You should be receiving emails from them already. However, you may be able to get the motion straight to a CLP meeting - so you should send it to your CLP secretary as well.

  • Affiliated unions and socialist societies can always submit motions to CLPs directly – check with your trade union or society.
