86 local Labour Party members met on 4 August to consider whether to make a supporting nomination in the Labour Leadership contest. Following a debate characterised by passionate but friendly contributions, the result was as follows:
- Jeremy Corbyn 50
- Owen Smith 30
- Abstentions 4
The result is not binding on our 540 eligible members who will vote for the candidate of their choice when the formal ballot begins w/b 22 August.
Many thanks to everyone who attended – see you all again soon or at our September meetings. Thanks too, to the staff at the Norton Conference Centre – great venue
