Policy Consultations

There were three major policy consultation sessions (by clicking the links below, you can download a copy of the relevant consultation paper):

  • Modernising our Economy: Building a modern Welsh economy by discussing what sort of economy we want for Wales and how we can improve the way in which Wales is promoted overseas.
  • The Future of our Healthcare: Improving the quality of our NHS when money is tight and the population is ageing. We will also examine the future for preventative and community care.
  • Inequality: Tackling Wales' deep-rooted inequality by examining how we can ensure that education outcome and life expectancy are not based on where you live or who your parents are

Motions

The hospital chaplaincy motion passed, which means that it is now party policy to divert the £1.3m currently being spent each year on the Welsh chaplaincy service into front-line health services.

The energy motion passed with some admendents, therefore the policy committee has agreed to review the party's policies on renewable energy to develop an action plan that takes account of the full range of social, environmental and economic factors relevant to the sector's development.

Conference also passed an emergency motion, which means that the party is against intensive "mega-dairies".
