The event, organised by pressure group Vital 4, takes place at Heckmondwike Grammar School on Tuesday, April 12 at 6.30pm.

Conservative candidates Sayeeda Hussain (Dewsbury) and Robert Light (Batley and Spen) have confirmed they will attend.

Also there will be Liberal Democrats Kingsley Hill Dewsbury) and Neil Bentley (Batley and Spen), along with BNP candidates David Exley (Dewsbury) and Colin Auty (Batley and Spen).
