Constituency Labour parties (CLPs) are based on parliamentary constituencies and the Wallasey CLP covers the same geographical area as the Wallasey parliamentary constituency, whose Labour MP is Angela Eagle. There are six council wards within the parliamentary constituency, each of which elects 3 councillors and there is a Labour party branch in each ward.
The CLP membership is made up of delegates from each of the six Labour branches that’s us – the Wallasey branch – plus New Brighton, Seacombe, Liscard, Leasowe and Moreton East, and Moreton West and Saughall Massie and also from affiliated trade unions and socialist organisations.
The CLP elects delegates to the Labour Party annual conference and to various other conferences and bodies and nominates candidates to some other bodies, such as the Labour Party national executive and it selects the local Labour candidate for general elections.
The CLP is also involved in much of the campaigning and planning work that goes on within the constituency. It can offer support to individual branches in their local activities and branches can also ask it to help coordinate campaigns across the consittuency.
