Westminster hustings to be held in Dundee

David WattA General Election debate involving the four main Scottish political parties is being staged by the Institute of Directors and the Association of Chartered Certified Accountants (ACCA) in Dundee on Friday, 20 February 20.

David Watt, executive director of IoD Scotland (pictured), said the election “promises to be particularly fascinating as the outcome is not at all clear”.

He added: “This is also an election that is being held at a time of unprecedented political awareness and engagement in Scotland, following last year’s referendum.

“Our Westminster Hustings Breakfast is an opportunity for business leaders to question representatives of the four main political parties in Scotland to find out how they plan to campaign in the election, what their business policies will be and how they intend to develop Scotland’s relationship with the UK.”

Taking part in the debate will be:

  • SNP: Stewart  Hosie  MP Deputy Leader for Dundee East,
  • Scottish Labour Party: Jim McGovern MP Dundee West,
  • Scottish Liberal Democrats: Cllr Tim Brett North East Fife,
  • Scottish Conservatives:  Luke Graham Ochil and Perthshire

The Westminster Hustings Breakfast will take place at the Apex Hotel in Dundee, starting at 7.45 am. Places can be booked online at www.iodscotland.com/events/ or by calling ACCA on 0141 534 4810  or emailing at scotland.events@accaglobal.com .
