Your chance to put the big questions to Nick Clegg
DEPUTY Prime Minister Nick Clegg is coming to Nottingham next week to take part in a public question-and-answer session, organised by the Post.
The event, in a central city centre location on Thursday, will allow readers to put their questions to Mr Clegg.
He said: "I'm delighted to be visiting Nottingham next week. I visited in August last year, to see for myself how the community had bounced back after the city was hit by rioters.
"The spirit I encountered then was humbling and I am looking forward to hearing from people directly on what has happened since then.

"I've been travelling across the country over the summer to hear first-hand how people are doing and see how Liberal Democrats in the coalition Government can do more to help them.
"Nottingham will be the last city I visit on my summer tour and I can't think of a better place to end on a high point.
"I look forward to meeting readers of the Nottingham Post: this is your chance to ask me any questions you may have. No topic is off limits so that we can have a frank and open discussion about the things that matter to you."
The visit was welcomed by city groups and organisations.
John Dowson, of Derbyshire and Notts Chamber of Commerce, said: "We're looking to see whether there's any fresh thinking in terms of kick-starting the economy and helping businesses create wealth and employ more people locally."
Jo Dean, external services director at NCVS, said: "I hope lots of Nottingham's 1,200 charities go to this event to talk about the needs of their service users and the issues facing them as organisations. In our recent 'state of the sector survey', 69 per cent of charities said they face a reduced income, and 36 per cent may have to close altogether, with little optimism that their services will be picked up by anyone else. Two-thirds said they were pessimistic about the future faced by their clients. How is Nick Clegg going to address these critical concerns?"
