Welsh Assembly Election Hustings
Welsh Assembly election candidates declared their stance on the upcoming EU Referendum, NHS privatisation and north Wales at a hustings event held in the Catrin Finch Centre last Friday. With the election less than two months away some of the region’s political party candidates were quizzed by an audience, made up of the region’s business leaders, in a Question Time style event.
The audience pitched questions to Welsh Conservative Mark Isherwood, Plaid Cymru’s Rhun ap Iorwerth, Michelle Brown of Ukip, Labour’s Sion Jones, Aled Roberts of the Liberal Democrats and Duncan Rees of the Green Party. The event brought together leading North Wales business figures and was moderated by ITV Wales reporter Carole Green. It was organised by the UK’s business organisation CBI in partnership with IOD Wales. By all accounts it was a lively debate with interesting questions raised by audience members and also on twitter and the Catrin Finch Centre was an ideal venue.
There will be another hustings event this time with the Party Leaders organised by the FSB at the Catrin Finch Centre on Wednesday 30th March at 5.30pm
