Labour Tribune MPs want to build on that heritage by initiating policy discussions and engaging with the wider Labour movement right across the UK. We will work with individuals and organisations that share our values and common goals, to develop ideas that will help inform and shape future debates around a wide range of policies.» Find out more here
7pm Tuesday 2nd July in Boothroyd room, Portcullis House
How do we make capital work for the common good, in the context of rising levels of inequality in wealth, new disruptions to the world of work - and the looming threat of climate change?
Join us on the 2nd July as we explore what led us to where we are, and how we build a future for Britain where capital works for the common good.

The Tribune group of MPs want to focus debate in our party on how we grow and achieve government. To do so, we need to remember and cherish our values. Why we formed as a party. What binds us together – the values that underpin our party – and drive the focus for policy. This paper is a contribution to that debate.
The Labour Party has been a radical force for change. The centre-left represented by the Tribune group is critical in framing the arguments that will win over traditional Labour voters and in explaining our values to those who have not voted for us in the past or have stopped seeing us as their first choice. We need to convince these people that it is our core values that they want to see applied in government.
Many of the things that Labour has championed are the things that people expect as basic rights and expectations today – things that became integral to the British Promise. This means we need to re-establish our credentials as the party that is at the core of that British Promise:
- that wants to see everyone flourish and helps the next generation aspire to do better
- that wants everyone to live a life they have reason to value
- recognises the mutual benefits of public and private endeavour
- that the public interest must be expressed by a dynamic, supportive state in society and the economy
- that is fair and is seen to be fair – on taxation, on rights and is on your side
- which is outward looking in the world and puts security of its people at its heart
