Labour’s ruling National Executive has been meeting for the last 5 hours, discussing its most dramatic ever change in direction, designed to put the party back on the road to government. Over the next 2 days the committee is expected to endorse a series of policy review documents, despite opposition from the Left. The most contentious issue involves the abandonment of unilateral nuclear defence in favour of a negotiated reduction in arms. From Transport House, Paul Rowley reports. With words from Labour Leader, Neil Kinnock; Deputy Labour Leader, Roy Hattersley; Tony Benn MP; David Blunkett MP; John Evans; NEC Chairman, Dennis Skinner.
