Havering’s answer to Question Time returns to Havering College on Friday with panellists from across the political spectrum.

Havering Asks, chaired by BBC World Service broadcaster Fred Dove, will feature Andrew Rosindell MP (Cons), Ivana Bartoletti (Lab), Craig Bennett (Friends of the Earth) and Rania Hafez (Muslim Institute) – discussing a range of issues from recent events in Paris and Syria to the price of plastic bags.

The event, which is part of the college’s television week, has helped previous students secure places at university and enhanced job applications.

“It’s the biggest thing any of us students have ever done before so it’s going to be exciting,” said the show’s director, college student Julius Grut.
