Achieving Labour policies in 2013
The Campaign for Labour Policies is hosting an event on October 10th to discuss two critical issues in current government decision-making – Budget 2013, and the primary healthcare agenda.
1) Ensuring a fair and equitable Budget 2013
Launch of the Campaign for Labour Policies pre-budget submission. Speakers will outline the key policies needed to ensure Budget 2013 delivers equality, jobs and growth for 2013.
2) Primary healthcare at the core of Labour health policy in government
Recent events have shown the challenges of achieving Labour health policies in coalition. This discussion will help members to argue for a reformed health service which delivers for the people in Ireland who need it most.
Speakers TBC for both events.
Date / Time: Wednesday October 10th at 8pm
The campaign, the grassroots organisation of Labour Party members, will meet in the Teachers Club, Dublin, on Wednesday to discuss the progress of the reform of the healthcare system.
Among the items which will be discussed are the decision of Ms
Shorthall to resign her position; what action must be taken to ensure the full implementation of the primary healthcare and alcohol misuse strategies, and members’ privatisation concerns.
