Jamaica National host Caribbean Questions
With 2015 UK general election only 18 months away – how can the voice of the UK Caribbean Diaspora be heard?
Jamaica National Building Society will be hosting Caribbean Question Time 2013 in London on Tuesday 3rd December from 6:30 – 9:00 pm at One Great George Street, London SW1P 3AA (near the Houses of Parliament). This is in keeping with our philosophy of strong corporate social responsibility and our hosting of several events in the United Kingdom over the years to ensure our community is kept informed on current developments not only in Jamaica but also in the UK.
Following on from the successful series of Caribbean Question Time (CQT) in 2010 and 2011; and in order to continue to provide a medium for the Caribbean community to engage with their political representatives and share their views on pertinent issues; we are pleased to announce our hosting of the third series this year.
The forthcoming general elections in 2015 present an opportune time for our community to have dialogue with their political representatives order to ensure that matters affecting them are placed on the political agenda. According to research the ethnic minority vote in Britain may determine the outcome of the next General Election and therefore the hosting of CQT is timely.
The CQT format will be similar to the popular TV programme, with a panel of UK politicians and community representatives who will discuss key issues affecting our community. Members of the audience will engage in lively discussion with the panelists on these issues.
Caribbean Question Time 2013 will focus on the following topics:-
- What is the impact of the of the Air Passenger Duty on the Caribbean Diaspora and it is equitable
- How does current Immigration policy impact on Caribbean Diaspora
- Is there a special relationship between The UK and the Caribbean and does Britain invest in the Caribbean Diaspora ?
- How can the Caribbean Diaspora be actively engaged in UK politics and what does the 2011 census tell us about the Caribbean Diaspora in the UK?
We are keen to ensure that a wide cross section of the community is able to participate however places are limited and we ask that you request a ticket to attend by contacting: firstname.lastname@example.org or via telephone 0207 708 6614.
We look forward to your attendance and active participation in the valuable discussion that is of great importance to the future of our community in the UK.
