Labour on politics, democracy and devolution

Now we know what is in Labour’s Manifesto on politics, democracy and devolution.

Labour will:

*** set up a people-led Constitutional Convention to determine the future of UK’s governance

*** replace the House of Lords with a Senate of the Nations and Regions

*** pass an English Devolution Act, handing £30 billion of resources and powers to our great English city and county regions

*** give new powers for communities to shape their high streets, including power over payday lenders and the number of fixed-odds betting terminals

*** meet our promises to devolve further powers to Scotland and Wales

*** give 16 and 17-year-olds the vote

*** create a statutory register of lobbyists
