- Scottish Labour’s plan to restore the money Scottish families stand to lose from tax credit cuts, paid for by scrapping the SNP plan to cut the Air Passenger Duty and the Tory plan to cut taxes for those on the higher rate. Labour stands for #familiesnotflights.
- A Fair Start Fund to give every primary pupil from a poorer background £1000 which their school can invest in closing the gap between the richest and the rest, paid for by asking those lucky enough to earn over £150,000 to pay a 50p rate of tax.
- We will give full grant support worth £6,000 a year for every looked after child who wants to go onto higher education.
- We will guarantee a real Living Wage for care workers
The issues debated on Members Sunday were decided by a priority ballot of unions and CLPs. As it turned out both had the same priorities - the Trade Union Bill and Trident. As a consequence TTIP and Housing were also debated. Conference voted to oppose the TU Bill, against the replacement of Trident and outright opposition to TTIP.
