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. Once again, discussions will be more greatly informed if groups are able to include younger members. If your CPF Group does not usually include many members aged under 40, then we would encourage you to use this opportunity to reach out to younger voters in your constituency.

Please advertise the CPF paper on your Facebook and Twitter pages and encourage participation of non-members as well. It would be great if you could post a photo online of your meeting too. Let people know that you are interested in them and want to understand their perspective.

We want to ensure that as many associations and as many members are able to engage in this vital and wide-ranging discussion. The closing date for this brief is therefore 31 May, after the elections that many areas will be contesting.

Please send your responses to the paper, via, using the associated response form published below.

A summary of responses to this paper will be sent to the Secretary of State for the Environment, the Rt Hon Michael Gove MP; CPF Chairman, George Freeman MP; Conservative Vice-Chairman for Policy, Chris Skidmore MP; and the Prime Minister’s Policy Unit within a month of the closing date for submissions.

The next paper will be on health and social care and will be published at the start of June. Thank you. We look forward to hearing your ideas on this important topic.
