Chipping Norton is holding its own hustings-style election debate next week.

All the main parties putting up candidates for Witney MP at the General Election will be represented at the public debate, which takes place on Wednesday 15 April in the Town Hall.

Chaired by the vicar of St Mary’s, Rev Dr James Kennedy, the hustings will be an opportunity for Chippy voters to put questions to the candidates.

They will answer in turn, in an allotted time – usually three minutes – and candidates will answer questions in rotation, so that no candidate always answers first.

All the main parties will be sending a speaker and all, except the Conservatives, will be represented by their local candidate in the parliamentary questions.

So if you want to find out what the candidates stand for, and what they will do for Chippy if elected, come to the hustings and ask them.
