Canterbury Christ Church University's series of political debates continues with Barry Sheerman, Labour MP for Huddersfield, on Thursday, 1 March.
Mr Sheerman will be asking the question: The Houses of Parliament are falling down - Can they be rescued by true democrats?
Dr David Bates, Programme Director of Politics and International Relations at the University, said: “We are pleased to welcome Mr Sheerman to Canterbury Christ Church University. He has been a Labour MP since 1979 and so has considerable experience of how the Houses of Parliament have changed over 30 years: from Margaret Thatcher to New Labour and now the Coalition Government, as well as seeing the impact of the expenses crisis.”
The event is part of the Making Politics Matter initiative, in which well-known local and national politicians discuss key issues and encourage public debate.
‘The Houses of Parliament are falling down - Can they be rescued by true democrats?’ will take place on Thursday, 1 March 2012, 7pm at Canterbury Christ Church University, Old Sessions House, Longport, Canterbury. The event is free and open to the public, no booking required.
