Reacting to Keir Starmer’s speech to the Labour party conference, Carys Roberts, IPPR executive director, said:

“Keir Starmer is right to say that progressives need to be the builders of the 21st century. This will need to be a decade-long programme of change and reform.

“He set out the building blocks of what that progressive programme should look like, reflecting IPPR’s thinking on reform in the health service, investment for a clean energy future, ending the hoarding of power in Westminster, and unleashing a new wave of housebuilding across the country.

“Labour’s task was to present itself as a credible government in waiting. Today’s speech was an important step on that journey.”
