Progressive state reformers v ideological state retrenchers: framing the electoral choice between Labour and Conservative

New thinking for Britain's next decade - Progress lecture series in partnership with LSE

Date: Monday 14 September 2009
Time: 11.45-12.45pm
Venue: Old Theatre, Old Building
Speaker: Lord Mandelson

With less than a year to go before the next general election there is an urgent need for progressive policy debate and discussion in the Labour party to show it has the ideas necessary to meet the social, economic and political challenges of the next decade. Peter Mandelson, one of the government's key figures, will launch Progress's autumn lecture series by setting out how he sees the political divide between the main parties.

Lord Mandelson is First Secretary of State, Secretary of State for Business, Innovation & Skills, and Lord President of the Council. He was previously European Commissioner for Trade, Secretary of State for Northern Ireland, and Secretary of State for Trade & Industry.

Progress| is an independent organisation for Labour party members and trade unionists.
