Senedd 2021 Policy Papers

The papers collected here seek to develop a bolder and more radical alternative to the status quo – yet they present policy proposals that, for the most part, would be entirely achievable by a Welsh Labour Government, if the political will were there. They have been written by longstanding party activists who have taken an interest in a particular policy area, not by professional policy-makers (although a few of our authors are elected representatives). They do not collectively constitute an alternative manifesto – there are a number of gaps in the range of policy areas that make up a full party programme, where we offer no proposals – but we do put forward ideas relating to most of the major departments of government.
