The Globe at Hay is offering a chance for members of the public to put their questions to the candidates running for the UK’s general election.

The event at The Globe at Hay, Hay-On-Wye, is on Thursday the 27th of June at 7 pm.

Candidates attending will make a 3-minute statement and then take questions.

Eight candidates will be contesting the new Brecon, Radnor and Cwm Tawe constituency in the General Election on July 4.

The list of official candidates is: David Chadwick – Welsh Liberal Democrats. Matthew James Dorrance – Welsh Labour. Emily Durrant-Munro – Plaid Cymru. Jonathan Harrington – Abolish the Welsh Assembly Party. Adam Hill – Reform UK. Fay Jones – Welsh Conservative Party. Amerjit Rosie Kaur-Dhaliwal – The Green Party. Lady Lily The Pink – The Official Monster Raving Loony Party.

In 2019, Fay Jones won the seat for the Conservative with a majority of 7,131 having received 21,958 votes, Liberal Democrat Jane Dodds was second with 14,827 votes and Labour’s Tom Davies came third with 3,944 votes.

Boundary changes to equalise the number of voters in each constituency will see the number of Welsh MPs returned to Westminster next month slimmed down from 40 to 32.

Changes have also been made to the boundary of Brecon and Radnorshire with around 30 per cent of the old Neath constituency added on to it.
