On 25th September, Glasgow University Union (GUU) hosted the Charles Kennedy Memorial Debate, celebrating the contributions made by the late former Liberal Democrat leader to the GUU and politics as a whole. The motion was "Should the UK remain within the European Union?".

The house voted unanimously in favour of the proposition.
