Channel 4 will host a debate between the Chancellor and shadow Chancellors on the economy, 5 days after the Budget Report.

Alistair Daring, George Osborne and Vince Cable will take part in an hour long debate in front of an invited audience of 200.

Channel 4’s Head of News & Current Affairs, Dorothy Byrne, said: “With the economy being the key issue of the election, this debate ? which will air just after the budget is announced – will provide an opportunity for the audience to question each of the prospective chancellors – holding them and their policies to account”.

The debate, chaired by Krishnan Guru-Murthy is live on Channel 4, Monday 29th March at 8pm.
