Abstract. We observe that a class of conditional probability measures for unbounded spin systems with convex interactions satisfies Poincar\'e and logarithmic Sobolev inequalities. For the corresponding conservative dynamics in a box of linear size $L$ we show that the inverse of the spectral gap and the logarithmic Sobolev constant scale as $L^2$ in any dimension.
