The Advertiser is hosting a debate on the independence referendum.

We’ve assembled a special panel – three from the Yes camp and three from the No – to take part in a Question Time-style discussion.

And we’re inviting our readers to take part as members of the audience – plus we want your suggestions for questions to put to the panel.

The debate will take place at McSence Business Park in Mayfield on Thursday, April 3, from 7-9pm. It is free to attend, but numers are limited, so please email us to book your place here.

Also use this method to send us your suggestions for questions to put to the panel.

If you don’t have access to email, call our newsdesk on 0131 561 6614.
