"The TRG remains the best place for those who, like me, believe in a market economy and individual liberty combined with a social conscience."
(Rt Hon Ken Clarke MP, January 2007)
The Tory Reform Group seeks to promote the One Nation Conservative values of:
The Tory Reform Group works to promote the values of One Nation Conservatism. That is, a modern, progressive Conservatism that strives for economic efficiency and social justice; a Conservatism that supports equality, diversity and civil liberties.
We believe that elections are won and lost in the centre ground and that the Tory Party is at its best when it is firmly in the centre. The TRG is active in supporting David Cameron and his positive vision for the Tory Party.
The TRG was formally established in June 1975, conceived as a national forum for ordinary Party members and MPs alike who saw the need for the application of traditional Tory values in the modern world. One of the largest groups aligned with the Party, the TRG is now recognised as the authentic voice of moderate, One Nation Conservatism throughout the Party.
"The TRG has contributed greatly to the Conservative Party over the last 30 years and is central to where we need to be in the future... your core beliefs in 'freedom, individual responsibility and community' matter now more than ever."
(Rt Hon. David Cameron MP, Summer 2009)
