Eve of Election Forum - Wednesday 6th May 2015

Eve of Election Forum
Eve of Election Forum

Hundreds of local people attended an Election Hustings in Chichester Cathedral last night, on the eve of the General Election.  Chichester candidates made their party's case for election and fielded questions submitted in advance by Chichester voters.  The Chichester candidates attending the event were:

Andrew Tyrie - Conservative
Jasper Richmond - Green Party
Mark Farwell - Labour
Andrew Smith - Liberal Democrat
Andrew Emerson - Patria Party UK
Andrew Moncrieff - UK Independence Party

The Dean of Chichester, the Very Reverend Stephen Waine, was Chairman of the Forum.  At the beginning of the evening he invited each candidate - in an order that had been determined by ballot - to give a presentation not exceeding three minutes.  The Chairman then followed this by asking the questions that had been submitted in advance.  The candidates responded to questions on the environment, the NHS, austerity policies and government cuts, education and housing.
