Covid-19 Notice

First of all let me state that the priority at the moment is your health and the health of your family.

A few things to note:

  • I am asking you to cancel any local Labour Party meetings scheduled for the month of April.

  • I would ask, if possible you try and keep in contact perhaps by phone or email with local members who may be elderly and living alone.

  • Head office will remain open for the next week with very limited staff. This will be reviewed on a regular basis. I request that members desist from coming to head office and use email or phone for any queries.

I would appreciate if you spread this message to your local members.

Please look after yourself and stay safe.

Brian McDowell
General Secretary
