Motion passed at CfS Public Meeting

Below is a the text of the motion passed by grassroots Labour Party members at a meeting hosted by Campaign for Socialism on Wednesday 13th May.  Over 100 activists were present at the meeting which was called only at two days notice and received near unanimous support.

In light of the heavy defeat of the Scottish Labour Party in the recent General Election, the Leader of the Scottish Labour Party should step down in favour of the Depute Leader. The Scottish Executive should then afford individual members and affiliates the opportunity to discuss in depth the wide ranging issues that need to be addressed in order to make the Scottish Labour Party an effective agency of social and political change in Scotland.
