OPEN TO ALL: Pre-election Home Affairs Debate

02 June 2017, 11:00
RUSI Whitehall
Senior representatives from all the main parties have been invited to take part in a RUSI home affairs debate ahead of the election.

Security is one of government's primary responsibilities - but how best to provide it is often controversial. Terrorist threats are rarely off the front pages, while cyber-crime and cyber-espionage are increasing concerns. Organised crime may be less visible, but still causes serious harm. How should government protect us against these threats, while balancing security with privacy? This debate will find out where the major parties stand on this question and many others relating to security, crime, terrorism, policing, intelligence, privacy and civil liberties.

Panellists include:

Conservative Party: The Rt Hon Ben Wallace

Labour Party: The Rt Hon Diane Abbott

Liberal Democrats: The Lord Paddick

Green Party: Dr Shahrar Ali
