Hustings panel in CSM theatre

Parliamentary candidates battling for General Election success were put on the spot by Central Saint Michael’s Sixth Form College students.

A hustings event was organised by college staff, where four prospective MPs for the West Bromwich constituency were given the opportunity to answer tough questions on education, health and the environment posed by the audience of A Level Politics students.

Deputy Principal Dr David Craik presided over the political panel which included:
Sarah Coombes – The Labour Party
Will Goodhand – Conservatives
Gita Joshi – Green Party
Ray Nock – Reform UK

Principal Dr Matt Lamb said: “With the General Election coming up on the 4th July it was an excellent opportunity to emphasise to our students the importance of participating in a democracy. We invited candidates from Labour, the Conservatives, Reform and the Green Party to a hustings where those seeking to be elected as the next MP for West Bromwich were quizzed by students and staff. As well as setting out why they should be the next MP, the candidates faced questions on issues such as education, health and the environment.”
