As committed members of the UK Labour Party we were pleased to accept the invitation to be a panel member for this Inquiry chaired by Martin Forde QC. We have served the party in a wide range of capacities for many years and we want to see it flourish, prosper and return to power.
We are approaching our work with a desire to identify the problems in the culture of the Labour Party, including the impact of internal factionalism, and to recommend changes designed to resolve current challenges and promote future success.
Each of us is carrying out our role with no preconceptions and no set of ready-made solutions. We will approach this work independently and be impartial at all times; we will consider all the evidence before making our recommendations.
Baroness Lister of Burtersett, Baroness Wilcox of Newport and Lord Lawrence Whitty
