Tonight marks start of News husting debates

Have your say

TONIGHT is your chance to put questions to your parliamentary candidates as The News holds its first hustings ahead of the general election.

We’ve teamed up with Portsmouth-based solicitors Coffin Mew to hold pre-election panels, where you can quiz those bidding to become your MP on May 7.

An event giving residents the opportunity to meet Gosport candidates is being held tonight at Thorngate Halls, in Bury Road. Visitors must get to the venue by 6pm for a 6.30pm start.
