Party members from across Liverpool and Merseyside joined fellow members, MPs, Conservative Party staff and the prime minister in Manchester for the annual Conservative Party Conference.
While the rain poured down in true Manchester style, the Conference was launched with the meeting of the National Convention, where party leader and prime minister Rishi Sunak addressed the attendees from the voluntary party and answered questions on a wide range of subjects from the NHS, to the economy and immigration.
Members heard from, inter alia, the Chancellor of the Exchequer, the Home Secretary, the Party Chairman, the Deputy Chairman, and of course the Prime Minister, at his first Party Conference in the role, on the main stage over the 4 days of the event.
City of Liverpool Conservatives’ members, including those who are representatives of the Executive Council for the Federation, took part in debates and the many fringe events, met and spoke with MPs and ministers, and contributed to discussion and preparations for the forthcoming Liverpool City Region mayoral elections, the Police and Crime Commissioner election - both in May 2024 - and the general election, due before January 2025.
