2/.New Committee Member. MJ. said Jessica Bignell would like to be Active and become a Committee member he suggested she could become Secretary. At the next Meeting.
3/. Integrity. The Committee believes that there should not be pressure groups such as Integrity operation within UKIP, as it divisive and we have enough problems within the party already, which hopefully will be corrected at the National Conference. Integrity stand for the same things UKIP stand for except they would like to accept Tommy Robinson as a member. The Committee stated that they agreed with most of what Tommy stood for but not the way that his campaign was run and that it would be detrimental to UKIP to accept him as a member though we have no objections to individual members being associated with him. The Committee believes that there is room in UKIP for discussion and even disagreement. But we all wish to stand together under UKIP’s umbrella. 
 4/. Future of UKIP. The committee believes the public have lost faith in our political system. After Brexit there will be a vacuum that UKIP will be needed to fill and ensure that Brexit will Not Be Reversed. The Committee believes that we have to reduce pollution wherever possible and encourage the investment and use of Technologies to that end. we should promote policies to reduce the use of plastics especially single use and promote recycling and clean air policy's. 
5/ Elections Under the present circumstances in the event of an election The Committee feel that we should approach the Conservatives and If we can get a written guarantee that their prospective MP will vote in favour of a WTO Brexit we will not stand a Candidate and will actively discourage the Brexit Party to also stand down. In the event of not receiving assurances that we are not getting a clean Brexit. We will stand a candidate or ask members to vote for the Brexit Party Candidate so as not to split the vote. In the event that we have left the EU before the Election we will be standing a Candidate.
