Chance for public to quiz duo on crime and politics
A SPECIAL meeting has been called to talk about crime and politics.
Crime Commissioner Paddy Tipping and Nick Palmer, Labour’s Broxtowe candidate for the next General Election, will visit Stapleford on Saturday, August 17.
They will be involved in an open debate which will start at noon and last until 2pm at The Meeting Place, Nottingham Road Stapleford.
Dr Palmer, who lost the seat at the last General Election, said: “Stapleford has always been one of the key areas for me as one of the three main towns in Broxtowe, and I’m particularly concerned that the attention on reviving Beeston after the current turmoil of tram construction should not lead to neglect of Stapleford’s needs.”
The Stapleford Community group has organised the meeting.
Chairman Richard MacRae said: “I think that it is important to know who these people are.”
Both Paddy Tipping and Nick Palmer will be answering questions from the public.”I have no political agenda and I will invite all the other candidates when they are announced.”
Anyone can attended the meeting and booking is not required.
