Invitation from Princes Risborough U3A – Question Time – David Lidington MP

5 June, 2018

On the Friday 20th July starting at 12 noon in the main hall of Princes Risborough Community Centre, Wades Park beside the swimming pool building, we will be holding a BBC type Question Time with local MP David Lidington. (DL)

You as a member of a U3A are welcome to attend (that includes members from other local U3A branches).  There is no need to book but there will be a small entrance fee of £1.  

The meeting takes place over lunch, starting at 1200 with an introduction on Rt Hon David Lidington MP, his background and government posts by myself.  My plan is to run the session like BBC Question Time.

As a U3A member you have first choice of a question.  You would stand and ask the question, after introduction, and have the right of a follow up comment.  I have received only one question to date and would like to have some searching, difficult and revealing questions to test DL.

He has been Foreign Office Minister for Europe, Leader of the House of Commons, Justice Secretary and latterly Cabinet Minister which is Deputy PM in all but name.  So please get thinking caps on and give me your best Questions please by emailing me at Andrew Melville-Jackson.  Email:

David has called this session ‘ At the Heart of Government’, so this is our opportunity to look into its soul! So, do come along, and test his mettle!

Best Wishes
