Principal and chief executive of Fareham College, Nigel Duncan, will chair the debate.

He said: ‘This is a fantastic opportunity for our students to hear from two experienced politicians why they believe we should remain or leave the EU.

‘For many of them, it will be the first time that they have voted and certainly the impact of the decision will be keenly felt by their generation perhaps most of all.

‘I’m delighted that we are able to welcome two such notable figures to field the questions our students have and help them to come to a decision about which way they will vote next week.’

The debate is on Thursday from 12.30pm until 2pm.
