More generous and more temporary: How do we reform welfare to build full employment?

March 11, 2013 @ 4:00 pm - 5:30 pm


4pm, Monday 11 March 2013, Grand Committee Room

  • Graeme Cooke author, The Purple Papers
  • Liam Byrne MP shadow work and pensions secretary
  • Karen Buck MP Westminster North
  • Nick Pecorelli associate director, The Campaign Company

With the launch of a new Progress pamphlet, The Purple Papers: Real Change for Britain, Real Choices for Labour, Progress is holding a series of events across the country to discuss the main themes it raises.

This seminar will focus on welfare, and the real choices Labour would have to make in order to bring about full employment.

The pamphlet, in the form of a series of green papers, takes forward some of the ideas and proposals that were made in The Purple Book last year, looking at the policy choices and priorites that would face an incoming Labour government in 2015: public services, the care crunch, the new economy and welfare.

The papers have been written by Patrick Diamond, research fellow at Policy Network; Graeme Cooke, associate director of IPPR and Steve Van Riel, former director of policy and research at the Labour party.

Progressive centre-ground Labour politics does not come for free.

It takes time, commitment and money to build a fight against the forces of conservatism. If you value the work Progress does, please support us by becoming a member, subscriber or donating.
