Put your questions to candidates at Leeds West 2019 general election hustings

Voters in Leeds West will be able to put their questions to General Election candidates at a special community-led hustings event in Bramley next week.

Candidates from all parties have been invited to the hustings in Bramley Community Centre on 5 December 2019 (doors 7.30pm for 8pm start).

Organisers are inviting people to email, tweet or facebook their questions for the candidates in advance and to come and meet the prospective MPs face to face, hear about their vision for the area, and to let the candidates know what is important to local people.

This is the third Bramley Hustings event. It is organised by five local residents: Sarah Hutchinson, Mark Law, Fran Graham, Alastair Hutchinson and Diane Law.

Organisers are particularly encouraging people who may not usually vote – and younger voters – to come along or to send their questions in advance. Answers will be fed back through social media and email, and the event will be shared live through Twitter and Facebook.

Children are very welcome to attend with parents, and the organisers are inviting local children to share their questions via parents so that those unable to vote can ask about the future the candidates will be asking younger people to inherit.

To get in touch and send your questions in advance for the hustings:
