Each union would have the power to send two delegates to party conventions and to submit resolutions to the party's governing council. Labour would still have seats on the council and the party's executive...But even those dinky changes were too much to swallow for hard-core unionists on the committee." Public Eye published a complete copy of that still unreleased report last Thursday.
