Question Time for Derbyshire

Chief Constable of Derbyshire Constabulary Mick Creedon will be taking part in Derbyshire’s very own version of Question Time when he becomes part of a panel at ‘The Derbyshire Debate’ at the University of Derby.

He will be joined on the panel by Chairman of Derbyshire Police Authority and Leader of the City Council Philip Hickson, as well as other panellists with great local influence and knowledge.

Politics, the economy, the media and law and order will all be up for discussion in the ‘debate’, which borrows the format from the long-running BBC TV programme but adds its own county flavour.

Audience questions will be put to them during the event at The Courtroom, at the University’s Kedleston Road site in Derby, from 7pm to 9pm on Wednesday November 30.

The event is free but those wishing to attend are asked to book a place via website www.derby.ac.uk/debate - where they can also submit a question which may be chosen as a topic for the evening - or phone Angela Drinkwater at the University on 01332 591046.

The entire panel will consist of Professor John Coyne, vice-chancellor of the University of Derby

Steve Hall, editor of the Derby Telegraph, Councillor Philip Hickson, Justice of the Peace, Chairman of Derbyshire Police Authority and leader of Derby City Council, The Rt Revd Dr Alastair Redfern, the Bishop of Derby, local businesswoman Deborah Fern OBE, and Mike Creedon.

The panel chairman for the evening will be Ben Jackson, presenter of BBC Radio Leicester’s weekday Breakfast Show.
