Haldane Society of Socialist Lawyers Endorses Our Manifesto!

The Haldane Society of Socialist Lawyers had formally endorsed our Manifesto for Housing after Suzanne Muna, the Branch Secretary, attended one of Haldane's committee meetings and outlined the work of our branch. Suzanne spoke on the lack of housing supply, the increase in homelessness, our demands, and the way that the branch has fought to improve the pay, terms and conditions of members, and in doing so to protect the quality of the housing services they provide.



Haldane was founded in 1930 and is an organisation that provides a forum for the discussion and analysis of law and the legal system both nationally and internationally, from a socialist perspective. They are independent of any political party, and membership consists of individuals who are lawyers, academics, students and legal workers, including trade union and labour affiliates (see Haldane's website here).


Russell Fraser, Haldane's Chair, subsequently wrote to the branch confirming its formal agreement to endorse our Manifesto, to the delight of our branch committee.
