      AS IT HAPPENED: University brings Question Time style election debate to Salford & Eccles

      A Question Time style debate featuring candidates from all major political parties in Salford and Eccles will take place in the Digital Performance Lab at Media City UK on Monday 23rd March.


      The event is being hosted by the University of Salford Student Union and will provide students the opportunity to question prospective MPs on a variety of issues.

      Candidates from Labour, Liberal Democrat, Conservative, Greens, and UKIP will be on the panel.

      Doors for the debate open at 18:30 and arrivals after 19:00 will not be let in. The debate concludes at 21:30.

      Tickets for the event are almost gone but the debate will be live-streamed through the Egg and available to view for all students.

      Questions for the candidates can be submitted here and are subject to slight alterations by the event organisers.
