Hard copies of the document are available through the Vote Office, or you can view an online copy here.
Up for discussion are the overall staffing budget, staff pay, the relationship between party political work and parliamentary work together with many other issues that will affect branch members.
We will be asking for your views on specific points over the next couple of months, but any initial thoughts/comments would be very welcome to help shape our submission in the early stages. Please email firstname.lastname@example.org with your thoughts.
The deadline for the end of the consultation is Friday 20 January 2012.
There is also a short online questionnaire you can fill out, although obviously it has been tailored by IPSA and so we recommend reading the full document and sending comments to the branch on top of that.
