More than 200 delegates and visitors met at the Conway Hall on Saturday November 15th for the Annual Conference of the Labour Representation Committee, the organising hub of the left wing within the Labour Party and among trade union activists. There was a determined mood among those meeting. After years of right wing drift and domination of the labour movement, LRC members rightly felt that the crisis had brought out the urgency for socialist ideas to be heard and taken up. The Conference was opened by a stirring speech from Tony Benn.
