County residents question Wales’ top leaders
Four of Wales’ top political leaders were challenged by Carmarthenshire residents when BBC’s Question Time came to Llanelli.
Carwyn Jones, Nigel Farage, Stephen Crabb and Leanne Wood were on the programme’s panel as well as comedian Romesh Ranganathan and David Dimbleby at Ffwrnes Theatre.
The group faced questions from the audience and David Dimbleby on current affairs topics including the NHS, Immigration, the EU and education.
Pupils and staff from St Michael’s School were invited to take part during the Question Time rehearsals and debated about obesity in children.
The council’s executive board member for leisure, Cllr Meryl Gravell said: “We were thrilled that the Ffwrnes was chosen as one of the venues to host Question Time. This was not just about the politicians but about the people, old and young, of Carmarthenshire being given a chance to voice the things that are important to them.
“More and more we see this top class theatre attracting big names from high profile organisations and I’m not surprised because the theatre is able to accommodate all types of events with what is has to offer.”
