The Dean of Chichester, the Very Rev Stephen Waine, commented. “This will be the third time the Cathedral has hosted this pre-election debate and we are delighted to be able to do so once again. Previous events have been very well attended and we invite everyone to come along on Thursday and present the candidates with questions.”
