Sir Keir Starmer has set out his vision of how the Labour Party will focus on providing security and opportunity to working people across the country.
Ahead of his first in-person Labour Party conference, Starmer has written an essay on the concept of ‘contribution society’, where we all have a part to play, one in which we recognise the value of family, community and each person and each businesses’ ability to contribute to the country’s success.
In order to put contribution at the centre of our efforts, the Labour leader says that his party would build an effective partnership of state and private sector to prioritise the things that we have seen really matter, focusing on health, living conditions, working conditions and the environment.
The essay explores giving workers the new deal they deserve, ensuring that hard working people don’t shoulder the burden of the recovery, revaluing those who got Britain through the pandemic and building a new partnership with business.
Starmer said: “People want to emerge from lockdown into something better. Our country is now at a crossroads: down one path is the same inequality of opportunity and insecurity. The Labour path is about building a better future for working people. Labour will build a society that prizes the contributions people make, providing security and opportunity across Britain.”
