There was one motion discussed at the meeting and following a short debate involving two amendments which were defeated, the substantive motion was passed by 36 votes for, 13 against and 8 abstentions.

The motion was:

“The Corby & East Northants Conservative  Association supports the commitments the Prime Minister has made to the country to honour the European Union Referendum result of 2016 that having triggered Article 50 we will leave the European Union on the 29th March 2019. Another referendum, a delay beyond the European elections, taking ‘no deal’ off the table or not leaving at all would betray the 2016 Peoples Vote and damage democracy and our Party for a generation.”
