General election candidates vying for votes in Rutherglen and Cambuslang will be put to the test at a hustings meeting tomorrow, Thursday.
Burnside Community Council will be hosting the event at Burnside and Blairbeth Church at 7.30pm.
Margaret Ferrier, SNP, Gerard Killen, Labour, Robert Brown, Liberal Democrats and Andy Dixon, independent, have confirmed their attendance.
Conservative candidate Ann Le Blond is not able to make the meeting but Taylor Muir, who stood for the Tories in the general election two years ago, will answer on her behalf.
The forum will be chaired by Robert Rowatt and the format will be similar to the BBC’s ‘Question Time’, with brief statements from the candidates before an open Q&A session. Questions should be emailed to email@example.com.
Jim O’Neil, chair of Burnside Community Council, said:“We have held events like this very regularly. It is open to all members of the public. Come along and see the candidates face to face and hear what they have to say.”
In April last year, Burnside Blairbeth Church held a similar event which was attended by over 200 local residents.
