A writ for the Corby and East Northants by-election was formally moved before health questions in the Commons this morning (Tuesday, October 23) by newly-appointed Chief Whip Sir George Young.

It will be held on Thursday, November 15, to coincide with the elections of local police commissioners.

The seat is being contested after the resignation of former Conservative MP Louise Mensch.
