There is a strong possibility that there will be a hung parliament after the next General Election. In such circumstances the Conservative Party could enter into a Coalition Agreement with another Party.
Should the Leader of the Conservative Party enter into a Coalition Agreement with another Party this must be endorsed by secret ballot at a meeting of the Parliamentary Party and by secret ballot at a Special General Meeting of Conservative Party members to which every Party member is invited.
The Leader of the Conservative Party could and should give an undertaking to do this now. In view of the catastrophic decline in membership of the Conservative Party it is essential to give Party members some rights in order to reverse the decline and as an incentive to join and remain members of the Party.
