Last year the National Policy Forum has seven policy commissions covering the major areas of policy. This year a new list of eight commissions has been established. Each member will be allocated to one commission which will continue its work preparing policies for the manifesto until the next General Election.

I am hoping to be allocated to either the International or the Economy Commission. Here is the list with the areas which they will cover.
