  • If we assume the sentence is as intended, it might be talking about discussions that were “held” (for a later time), saying that the related motions were now “passed” and “carried forward”. – Lawrence Jul 27 '18 at 5:41

in the above sentence 'held' is used as an adjective of 'discussions' noun......'held' describes which type of 'discussions'.

past participle form of verbs is also used as an adjective (ex. solved examples, broken glass etc.)
