I was asked by Kirsteen Fraser of Debate is Free to publish the following and I'm pleased to do so:
We at Debate is Free are holding an event for young, first time and undecided voters in Scotland as we approach the General Election which could be just weeks away. Many voters will be wanting straight answers to their questions from all the parties. At DiF we aim to please so over the past few weeks we have been working on a way to give the people exactly what they want. We have approached all the parties and have got a panel together for you to send your questions to as General Election 2010 moves even closer.
The final panel is as follows:
Patrick Harvie - Glasgow MSP and Co-Convener of the Scottish Greens
Ann McKechin - Glasgow MP and Minister for the Scotland Office
Alistair Carmichael - MP for Shetland and Orkney and Lib Dem Shadow Secretary of State for Scotland and Northern Ireland
Tommy Sheridan - Co-Convener of Solidarity
John Mason - Glasgow MP and SNP Spokesman for Work and Pensions
Richard Cook - Conservative PPC for East Renfrewshire
You might have seen that Question Time is also holding a first time voters edition and ours is of a similar idea. However the political outlook in Scotland, due to devolution, is a very different one from the rest of the UK and we think it would be more useful for voters in Scotland to have a programme that caters for them and the issues that dominate Scottish politics.
We have done our best to ensure we have a vibrant and interesting panel and we hope as many of you send in your questions as soon as possible or apply to be part of the audience, but please hurry as space is very limited for the audience.
