Labour Party Leader Ed Miliband Holds Q&A with Hastings Residents


The Labour Party Leader Ed Miliband held a Q&A session with members of the public, businesses and charities from Hastings on Friday August 1st.

Ed Miliband was joined by parliamentary candidate Sarah Owen at the event in the town centre which gave people a chance to ask about the issues they care about.  

It comes after the Labour Party's pledge to introduce the Peoples' PMQs which would allow voters to question the Prime Minister as MPs do.

Just under 200 people joined the session at St Marys in the Castle and asked questions on a wide range of issues from immigration to voting at 16.  

Sarah Owen, Labour's parliamentary candidate in Hastings & Rye, said: "In Hastings & Rye we have never been shy about putting our views across and that made the town the perfect venue for this Q&A session.  

"People had the chance to ask questions about the issues that matter most to them and to hear how the Labour Party is committed to making their lives better."  

Before the Q&A session Ed Miliband and Sarah Owen visited the beachfront to talk to tourists and residents.
