Real choices for Labour: What would we give up to pay for universal childcare?
6pm, Tuesday 30 October
Grimond Room, Portcullis House, Wesminster
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 first Westminster event will focus on childcare, and the real choices Labour would have to make in order to bring in universal childcare, which estimates say will cost an additional £7 billion per annum.
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.
The panel will take questions from the floor.
