This draft resolution has been prepared for discussion in the lead up to the 8th National Conference of the Socialist Alliance.

At the Seventh National Conference of The Socialist Alliance the order of presentation and initial discussion on the topics to be decided differed from the order of final discussion and voting, which took place on the last day of conference. These draft minutes record the process of amendment and voting on topics in the order in which they were initially presented and discussed, i.e, in the order in which they first appeared in the conference agenda.
