A new Co-operative Development Programme

As part of the policy review being undertaken jointly by the Co-op Party and the Labour Party to look at how to double the number of co-ops in the first term of an incoming Labour Government I’ve put together some notes on how it was in the 70s and 80s, when we had a network of up to 140 local Co-operative Development Associations and a national Co-operative Development Agency as part of Government.

This policy review started with the nef report, Co-operatives Unleashed and has now produced an internal discussion paper for the Shadow Chancellor.

As part of the Implementation Group I’ve been at the heart of the debate, which is now continuing outside this group on Platform 6 and on Loomio at Proposal for a National Co-operative Development programme
