One of the key principles of the Social Liberal Forum is to maintain internal democracy of the Liberal Democrats. As a result, we would like to oppose the Constitutional Amendment being presented to Spring Conference on Saturday and support the following amendment;
Add new section 15.6
If after a vote at Conference i) the proposal from the Commons Party is agreed but ii) the majority is less than 2/3rds then, if after further consideration, the Commons Party still wishes to support the arrangement with one or more other parties then at their request the Federal Executive shall arrange a ballot of all Party members pursuant to clause 6.11 or 8.6 of the Constitution, the consent of a majority of those voting shall be taken as giving support to the arrangement.
We believe this will help maintain internal democracy within the Liberal Democrats
We therefore urge all members to attend this session on Saturday
