Extract from the Report:

19. We have been told that both the structure of political parties, and the way in which they 
are funded, should be reformed in such a way as to increase voter engagement. John E 
Strafford told us that the structure of political parties did not allow for “meaningful 
participation”, and that there was therefore little incentive to be a member of a political 
party.41 He suggested that individual party members should have a greater say over party 
matters, and that there should also be greater party activity at a regional level.
