Roll up! Roll up! Election Hustings

With the Scottish Parliament elections just six weeks away, all the parties are setting out their stalls. Which party is most committed to the genuine empowerment of local people?  Who has the strongest commitment to deliver the climate change targets? Who would release land or community growing? Who will support the role of community based housing associations? All these questions and more can be put to leading politicians of all main parties at our special election hustings on 7th Ap
