Members of the European Parliament face a public grilling in St Andrews this week.
A matter of weeks before the European elections, Elspeth Attwooll (Liberal Democrat), Ian Hudghton (SNP), John Purvis CBE (Conservative) and Catherine Stihler (Labour) will take the stand as part of European Question Time.
The University event, to be chaired by Principal and Vice- Chancellor Dr Brian Lang, will be held in the seat of the first Scottish Parliament at Parliament Hall, South Street, St Andrews from 1-2pm on Friday 16 April 2004.
Members of the audience can pose questions on the day or submit questions in advance via the University Press Office, 82 North Street, St Andrews, KY16 9AL or email firstname.lastname@example.org.
The event, part of a rolling programme taking place in Scottish universities, is being held in conjunction with the European Parliament Office in Scotland whose role is to promote public awareness of the European Parliament’s role in the formulation, adoption and oversight of EU policies, promote contacts between the European and Scottish Parliaments, and improve links between Scots and their elected MEPs.
The event is open to the public and free of charge. No tickets required.
