Kirklees Question Time
Thursday 12th October
From 7pm to 8.30pm (arrival from 6pm)
The Oastler Building, University of Huddersfield
Do you have a pressing question for our local politicians? Come along to this live and interactive Question Time style event to hear your questions being put to a panel of councillors.
Local government touches every aspect of our day-to-day lives – so the decisions that our local leaders make will affect you, your family and our communities. This event is a chance for you to put your questions directly to some of our local leaders.
You will hear from five panellists on the night, including local party leaders and one of our Kirklees youth councillors:
- Councillor David Sheard, Labour Group Leader
- Councillor Andrew Cooper, Green Party Group Leader
- Councillor Nicola Turner, Liberal Democrat Group Leader
- Councillor John Taylor, Conservative Group Deputy Leader
- Matthew Moran, Kirklees Youth Councillor
The event will be chaired by Dr Andy Mycock, Reader in Politics at the University of Huddersfield.
How to take part
You can submit your question in advance, or there will be a chance to submit your question on arrival. Our Question Time will be webcast live and you can follow on twitter via #KirkleesQT
This is a free event, open to everyone. Please book your place in advance.
Growing a stronger local democracy
Our Question Time is based on one of the recommendations from the Kirklees Democracy Commission’s “Growing a stronger local democracy” report. Our citizens have told us that you want more opportunities to have face-to-face contact with the people who represent you. The Question Time format was suggested by citizens who took part in some of our previous events. This is our first opportunity to try it out – and we are keen to hear what you think.
This event is jointly organised by Kirklees Council and the University of Huddersfield.
