Darren Caplan, Conservative candidate for Hackney North and Stoke Newington, is asking for questions he can put to Diane Abbott on Thursday.
According to his website: www.DarrenCaplan.com, he will be taking part in a debate with Diane on Thursday. I couldn't tell where.
Diane, meanwhile, is also due to take part in "The Great Education Debate" at the Round Chapel on Powerscroft Road on Tuesday 23 March - latest details in the Hackney Citizen.
