Socialist Worker

Political fund

Issue No. 1817

AROUND 60 people came to a meeting in Cardiff last week to discuss the democratisation of the unions' political funds. Speakers were Socialist Alliance member Paul Foot, Plaid Cymru's trade union liaison officer Ian Titherington, and Vale of Glamorgan Labour councillor Stuart Egan.

All the speakers denounced the policies of the New Labour government and called for the unions' funds to be opened up so that money could be given to other left wing forces as well as the Labour Party.
