Monday 26 January 2015 | 17.30-18.45 | Lecture Hall, Methodist Central Hall
We are pleased to invite you to a special event we are organising with the Labour Campaign for International Development and over fifteen partners from across the Labour movement to discuss the next Labour Government’s internationalist vision.
Labour’s next Foreign Secretary, Douglas Alexander MP, our next International Development Secretary, Mary Creagh MP, our next Climate Change Secretary Caroline Flint MP and our next Defence Minister Ian Lucas MP will all speak on our panel, which will be followed by a Q&A and a drinks reception. The event will be chaired by Mary Riddell, columnist for The Daily Telegraph.
Internationalism is in Labour’s DNA. From Indian independence, to the anti-apartheid struggle, and the last government’s tripling of aid and rescuing of the global economy, the Labour Party has arecord to be proud of. In a year that will see Britain go to the polls, a new set of Sustainable Development Goals agreed, and a global climate deal negotiated, how can that great tradition be carried forward? How can Britain once again become a progressive powerhouse, leading global efforts for a more equal, safer, and more prosperous world?
Come along to this event to find out – your only opportunity to see all of Labour’s international Shadow Cabinet team in one event before the election.
Numbers are limited, so please RSVP by clicking here – and follow updates on Twitter using #LabourWorld.
The drinks reception will take place on the top floor of The Westminster Arms, next door to the event, from 18.45.
