IV: Labour's Aims and Values

  1. The Labour Party is a democratic socialist party. It believes that by the strength of our common endeavour, we will achieve more than we achieve alone; so as to create: for each of us the means to realise our true potential and for all of us a community in which power, wealth and opportunity are in the hands of the many not the few, where the rights we enjoy reflect the duties we owe, and where we live together, freely, in a spirit of solidarity, tolerance and respect.
  2. To these ends we work for:
  1. Labour is committed to the defence and security of the British people, and to cooperating in European institutions, the United Nations, the Commonwealth and other international bodies to secure peace, freedom, democracy, economic security and environmental protection for all.
  2. Labour will work in pursuit of these aims with its affiliated organisations such as trade unions and cooperative societies, and also with voluntary organisations, consumer groups and other representative bodies.
  3. On the bases of these principles, Labour seeks the trust of the people to govern.
