What is the CPF?
The CPF gives Members of the Party the opportunity to take part in policy discussions and get their voices heard.
What does the CPF do?
The CPF is a national Party Group that gives members the opportunity to discuss the major policy challenges facing Britain. The CPF is chaired by Oliver Letwin, Minister for Government Policy. CPF groups are active in Constituencies in every Region and Area.
We want to give our members the chance to have a say in the writing of the next manifesto. To this end, we produce nine discussion briefs a year on a number of subjects from ‘Natural Resources’ to ‘Where will growth come from’. Local groups then meet to discuss these topics, and to send their response back to Central Office, where the professional team write a summary of the responses received. This is then sent to the relevant Minister for consideration, who responds in due course.
In addition to this we engage with our members though national events such as the CPF Winter Conference, and our various regional events, which give our members the chance to come together and discuss policy.
