With the Party Conferences season shortly upon us, all government communicators should be aware of the general principles for civil servants’, including special advisers’, which will apply for such conferences. This party conference guidance also applies to those on secondment or loan to departments from external organisations and those working in NDPBs.

Dates of the Conferences for the three main parties are set out below:

  • Liberal Democrat: 22 – 26 September
  • Labour: 30 September – 4 October
  • Conservative: 7-10 October
