YOUNG people from secondary schools across the borough are to get the chance to debate big issues with a panel of politicians and key influencers when Havering Asks returns on Friday, November 14th.

Havering Asks is a special Q&A panel run by Havering Council in partnership with Havering College, as part of their local democracy work with young people.

The debate modelled on BBC's Question Time is now in its fourth year and this year's panellists will include:

Haras Rafiq, managing director of the anti-radicalisation think tank, the Quilliam Foundation.

Greenpeace activist Roisin Robertson, who trained and worked as a journalist, and founded Bromley Against Fracking.

Roger Evans, chairman of the London Assembly and Conservative GLA member for Havering & Redbridge.

Mike Le-Surf, Labour's parliamentary candidate for South Basildon and East Thurrock.

Cllr. Ian De Wulverton, a Havering councillor and member of the United Kingdom Independence Party (UKIP).

Chairing the event will be BBC World Service broadcaster Fred Dove.

The event is cross-curricular, meaning Havering College students from many different subject areas are involved in planning, producing and running the event. Media students will be filming the debate and Beauty students will be on set working as make-up artists.

As Havering Asks director Frankie Harris, 17, from Chigwell, is in overall charge and responsible for the look of the show and its second-by-second production.

Frankie, who is in the second year of a Media Level 3 BTEC Extended Diploma course, said: "It is very exciting. It makes it more daunting as the show is going out live on the internet but I like organising people to make sure everything goes right."

Havering Asks 2014 will take place on Friday, November 14th, from 2pm, at the college's Ardleigh Green Campus in Hornchurch, Greater London RM11 2LL.

This year it will be streamed live to screens across all Havering College Campus sites and live on the internet at http://www.haveringasks.org

Everyone will be able to follow the debate live on Twitter at https://twitter.com/haveringasks

Council Leader, Cllr Roger Ramsay, said: "Havering Asks 2014 is an excellent way for our local young people to meet leading people from the fields of politics and campaigning organisations and ask them questions about local, national and international issues."

Havering College principal Maria Thompson said: "We are delighted to be working in partnership with the Council to stage the fourth Havering Asks debate. The event will give our students and other young people in the borough the opportunity to debate the issues which matter to them with politicians and key influencers.

"It will be a fantastic insight into the television industry for our Media students who will be filming the debate as if it was a live broadcast and it will also be a working experience for our Beauty students."
