More than 100 people turned out for an open debate about Britain’s membership of the European Union (EU).
Next month, voters will go to the polls for a referendum on whether the country should remain part of the EU.
Two Devon MPs, Neil Parish and Anne Marie Morris, were at the Public Hall event debating the issues surrounding the upcoming vote.
The debate was arranged by Budleigh in Business, and chairman Helen Warren was pleased with how it went.
She said: “Both gave well-researched arguments for and against and were able to give reasoned answers in response to some interesting questions from the floor.
“They both kindly agreed to stay behind to answer individual questions.
“I am pleased to have been able to offer a useful and informative event, free to the local community and I would like to thank everyone who helped to make it possible.”
