Originally Published 18 February 2003

Britain's controversial alliance with America against Iraq and a range of other topics relating to contemporary Europe will be at the top of the agenda on 20th February, as Michael Cashman Labour MEP, Philip Bushill-Matthews Conservative MEP and Nicholas Clegg Liberal Democrat MEP, battle and debate the most pressing issues facing Europe today.

Dr Philippa Sherrington, from the Department of Politics and International Studies at The University Warwick, said: "The European Question Time debate will bring to the fore a range of issues that face local people and students in the area, including controversial issues such as the Euro and Britain's stance on invading Iraq. It is a great opportunity for local people to find out how they are represented in Europe and voice their concerns on various topics."

Organised by the European Parliament and the University of Warwick, the event is free and members of the public are welcome to attend. There is no need to reserve seats, and it will be held in Room RO.21, Ramphal Building, University of Warwick from 7pm-9pm.
