A Manifesto for Mutuals: 2019 General Election Policy

14 November 2019 | Advocacy, News

Since the last General Election, UK Mutuals have enjoyed continued and welcome all-party political support. 

But there is much more to do to ensure that these important businesses can play a greater role in our economy and society and help to build a fairer country. 

By its policy, legislative and regulatory actions, the next Government can enable these businesses to fulfil their potential and deliver a wide range of public policy objectives. 

In this election, we call upon each of the political parties to promise to adopt our plan for action:

1. Recognise and support the value of diverse forms of enterprise in the UK economy 

2. Ensure that policy, legislation and regulation works to provide a fair business environment for mutuals: 

• Greater recognition and policy understanding of the sector by national and devolved politicians 

• A commitment to an enabling legislative environment for the sector in the UK 

• An understanding of where inappropriate regulation affects the sector and a commitment to address this where it occurs 


3. Work with Mutuo and other sector bodies to implement the objectives of the UK Mutual Economy Report 2019
