Hosted by Stephen Jardine, programme makers are now looking for islanders interested to participate in the 2 June episode.
“Maybe you are a parent, frontline worker, run a business, a student, have been self-isolating or your work has been affected by Coronavirus; whatever your situation, we want you to apply and be part of the discussion,” senior researcher Ayden Butt said.
Applications can be made via the ‘Join the Audience function on the Debate Night website. The deadline is midnight this Sunday.
