Speaker: Sir Stephen Wall, Evan Davis
With the crisis continuing in the eurozone, recent polls suggest that the vast majority of the British electorate would be in favour of a referendum on Britain’s membership of the European Union. In the current climate the voices of those in favour of the European project have been noticeable by their absence. Today programme presenter Evan Davis chairs this debate on the motion “Britain should stay in the European Union.” Tony Blair's former EU adviser Sir Stephen Wall will defend the proposition against a panel that are opposed to Britain remaining in the EU in its current guise.
The debate is being recorded for broadcast on BBC Radio 4. It will be broadcast on Wednesday 8 August at 8pm and will be repeated on Saturday 11 August at 10.15pm.
