3) DEBATE THESE ISSUES
IN AN IMPARTIAL ARENA
Debates around the issues raised
would be held at Regional, Sub regional/County level and
local levels to allow the public to know what their leaders
think of the proposals.
ElectionsUK, as an impartial provider, has prepared and
tested a structure on how these debates might be run and
will co-sponsor any properly constituted debate. It is hoped
that the regional and local media of all types will work
with us to bring these about.
We will provide an chairman or woman, from an previously
agreed list prepared under the supervision of Professor
the Lord Norton, Chairman House of Lords Constitution Committee.
Each side will be asked to provide a small number of issues
which will be debated separately to achieve maximum useful
material to assist the public in reaching an informed decision.
The issues that are supported by facts will collected by
the chairman / woman and entered in the ElectionsUK web-library
for public access at any time.
It is planned to be involved with debates at the National,
Labour and Liberal Democrat, Spring Conferences which are
to be held in the Region.
