Businesses invited to join ‘5 Live’ immigration debate in Leeds

Businesses are being invited to take part in a ‘Question Time’ style debate on immigration and integration in Leeds on Radio 5 Live.5LiveNihalSarah

The debate takes place from 1-2.30pm on Thursday 23 March at Belgrave Music Hall, New Briggate.  Participants will need to attend by 11am though.  Questions can be submitted beforehand, with several posed live on air.  Requests to attend should be made to the BBC’s Laura Jones at 0161 335 6747 or, preferably by 16 March (it won’t be possible to just turn up on the day).

The debate will be moderated by 5 Live’s Nihal Arthanayake and the panel will include at least four politicians and commentators, with an audience of 30 expected.

The show is the finale of a week of special programmes called ‘My Britain’ examining the different views on modern Britain and what divisions exist in the country.
