Summary of Health and Social Care Discussion

In response to our discussion on health and social care, we received submissions from 124 CPF groups representing 150 constituencies and at least 1199 members across the country. This represents the largest number of submissions since the 2015 general election (and possibly ever) and more than 10 per cent above the average number of participants.

Digital Age Discussion Paper

We hope that you have seen the encouraging formal responses that we received to our discussions on the environment, on skills & training and on Conservatives values. We are pleased to publish this new discussion paper on the challenge and opportunities of the digital age.

Feedback on Skills & Training and Environment discussions

The CPF’s Paper 1/2018 on “Skills and Training for a 21st Century Workforce” and Paper 2/2018 on “Conservative Conservation” were excellent discussions. The Papers are diverse, wide-ranging and engaging; their suggestions for policy development are both thoughtful and compelling. We very much value the direct input of CPF members into our work here in Downing Street, and I am very pleased, on behalf of Gavin Barwell as Chief of Staff, to enclose formal feedback to several issues that were raised.

Feedback on Conservatives Values & Policy Commission

I am delighted to be able to bring you this formal response from Chris Skidmore MP, Chair of the Conservative Policy Commission and Vice Chair for Policy, to the CPF's reflection on Conservative values, which began with our national discussion paper and concluded with our recent online Members' poll.

Summary of environment discussion

In response to our discussion on the environment, we received submissions from 94 CPF groups, representing 109 constituencies and at least 838 members across the country.

Health and Social Care Discussion

Last year, the CPF published a discussion paper on the important subject of adult social care. That was interrupted by the snap general election, during which the debate moved on significantly. This paper picks up and widens that discussion.

Summary of skills and training discussion

In response to our discussion paper on skills and training, we received submissions from 100 CPF groups representing 115 constituencies and at least 945 members across the country.

Feedback from Downing Street on our Youth Issues discussion

I’m delighted to be able to report and share with you this response from Downing Street to our recent discussion paper on Youth Issues.

As you can see, our improved consultation process and dialogue with Ministers and Departments is paying dividends.

Conservative Conservation

This CPF discussion paper continues our series of papers that encourage members to reflect on policies of particular concern to voters under 40, with whom last year’s general election showed we have a distinctive challenge.

Summary of youth discussion

In response to our discussion paper on youth issues, we received submissions from 118 CPF groups representing 144 constituencies and at least 1,449 members across the country, an increase of over 15 per cent compared with our previous discussion.
