In a close vote in the conference hall, Lib Dem conference delegates decided to debate “Freedom, Creativity and the Internet” as the single emergency motion to be considered tomorrow.

  • I understand the motion put to a vote is slightly amended from the version we have seen so far due to being too long for an emergency motion. Does anyone have the text of the actual motion that won the ballot today?
