On Monday at 5 pm I am debating austerity and growth policies at the Sheldonian Theatre , Oxford under the chairmanship of the Warden of St Antony’s College. The other main participants are Martin Wolf of the FT, Robert Skidelsky and Meghnad Desai.
The topic is “Austerity in the UK and the Eurozone: kill or cure?” Anyone interested in hearing is welcome to attend this public debate, at no cost to them.
My Parliamentary duties allow me to do this, as Parliament is having another day’s debate on the Queen’s speech. I have already made my speech in this debate and am not allowed to speak again in the main debate. There will be no vote on Monday.
