Terms of Use

NOTE: The aims and purposes of the Campaign for Chris Williamson have been updated following Chris Williamson's resignation from the Labour Party on 6 November 2019 and his decision to stand as an independent candidate in Derby North in the forthcoming general election on 12 December 2019. The Campaign is no longer seeking Chris Williamson's re-admission to the Labour Party, nor is any further legal action being taken against the Labour Party for that purpose.

If you would like to see the old Terms of Use that were in effect until 6 November 2019, please see here.
