With the 2015 UK general election only 18 months away –
how can the voice of the UK Caribbean Diaspora be heard?
You are invited to participate in Caribbean Question Time 2013 to be held on Tuesday 3rd December, from 6:30 to 9:00 pm, at One Great George Street, London SW1P 3AA
(near the Houses of Parliament).
The series is hosted by Jamaica National Building Society and is in keeping with the Society’s strong corporate social responsibility philosophy which involves hosting events in the United Kingdom to keep the community informed about current developments in Jamaica and the UK.
Caribbean Question Time (CQT) series, provides a medium for members of the Caribbean Community to discuss pertinent issues with the political representatives.
According to recent research, the ethnic vote in Britain may determine the outcome of the next general election and therefore this period preceding the 2015 election is an opportune time for dialogue.
The CQT format is similar to the popular Question Time TV programme, and will include a panel of Members of Parliament from the three main UK political parties and community representatives who will discuss key issues affecting the community while the audience will engage in lively discussions with the panelists on these issues.
Caribbean Question Time 2013
will focus on the following topics:-
- What is the impact of the Air Passenger Duty on the Caribbean Diaspora and is this tax equitable?
- How does the current Immigration policy impact the Caribbean Diaspora?
- Is there a special relationship between the UK and the Caribbean and how is this manifested?
- How can the Caribbean Diaspora become more actively engaged in UK politics?
- What does the 2011 census tell us about the Caribbean Diaspora in the UK?
We are keen to ensure that a wide cross section of persons can attend this event. However, space is limited, therefore we ask that you request an entry ticket by contacting us at firstname.lastname@example.org or via telephone 0207 708 6614.
We look forward to your attendance and to your active participation in this valuable discussion which is of great importance to the future of our community in the UK.
