Over 100 people attended our Annual Event, which this year took the form of a highly topical debate on the subject “Referenda are Foreign to the British Constitution”.
The debate was chaired by The Rt Hon Sir Patrick Elias with The Rt Hon Sir Stanley Burnton and Peter Kellner CBE FBA proposing and Professor Vernon Bogdanor and Dominic Grieve MP QC opposing.
The audience was treated to a highly entertaining and thought provoking debate with both sides firmly putting their respective cases. Following the debate, members of the audience enthusiastically took the opportunity to question the panel further.
The Foundation is extremely grateful to all those who took part and is especially grateful to Grays Inn for kindly hosting the event and the reception afterwards.
