Unite Calls for a National Investment Bank

moneyUnite the union has said it will use the Labour Party Conference to call for bold policies to renew the British economy.


AP reports that the Unite general secretary Len McClusky is to attack the Government’s plans for a business bank as “disappointingly” modest.


The Unite website says that during the rebuilding our economy debate on Monday Len will urge Labour to be bold, to grasp its potential of a NIB to create jobs and skills and spread wealth fairly across our communities.  He will say that Labour must not adopt the cautious model set out by Vince Cable earlier this week.


On The Andrew Marr Show this morning Ed Miliband said he would protect the Labour-union link but would be independent minded.
