Official Statement Concerning the Cancellation of the EU Parliamentary Hustings Event on 17 May 2019


Freddie Gough, VP Societies and Communication, commented:

“We are disappointed that the EU Elections Hustings Event, which was organised by UWE Debating Society, has had to be cancelled.”

“We are extremely proud of our societies, who organise challenging events that inform the wider student body about events and issues affecting them. The Debating Society have put in an enormous amount of effort to organise this event and secure high-level speakers, which would have provided an informative and lively discussion.

“We will continue to support our societies to exercise their right to freedom of speech and remain committed to enabling students to organise a range of events that promote debate.”
