EVESHAM’S MP Nigel Huddleston and UKIP spokesman for the town Richard Keel will be going head-to-head in a debate on whether Britain is better off in or out of the European Union.

With only six weeks to go ahead of the in-out referendum on Britain’s membership of the EU, the Mid-Worcestershire MP will make the case for why the UK should remain in, while the UKIP spokesman will make the argument for why the UK should leave.

Following the debate, members of the audience will be able to put questions to the two debaters.

The event is being held at Peopleton Village next Friday, May 13 at 7pm. Tickets aren’t not needed to attend the debate.

Mr Huddleston said: “I want my constituents to hear both sides of the argument in the run up to this important referendum. This is why I will be taking part in this discussion.

“The event is not intended to be a shouting match or antagonistic debate, but a civil and informative discussion.

“I hope it will be particularly useful for those who are undecided in helping them make up their mind.”

Mr Keel said: “With the recent, sometimes aggressive, campaigning from both sides I would like to have a constructive discussion enabling people to share their views on whether remaining in or leaving the EU is best for the UK.”
