TaxPayers' Alliance on BBC Question Time

February 02, 2012 4:35 PM

Tonight our Campaign Director, Emma Boon, will be on the panel of Question Timethe BBC’s flagship political discussion programme. Emma will be discussing the week’s hot political issues, and it’s sure to be a lively debate from Southport with bankers’ bonuses and welfare reform likely to feature prominently.

It’s the first time that a member of our team has been a panellist on Question Time and we’re immensely proud that Emma will be representing the TaxPayers’ Alliance tonight.



The show will be on BBC One from 10.35 pm this evening. We hope that you can tune in and cheer Emma on, but if not you will also be able to catch the programme online through the BBC’s iPlayer afterwards.

Tonight’s panel, chaired by presenter David Dimbleby, will be:
Emma Boon, Campaign Director of the TaxPayers’ Alliance
Alan Duncan MP, International Development Minister
Sadiq Khan MP, Shadow Justice Secretary
Digby Jones, former Head of the Confederation of British Industry (CBI)
Phil Redmond, creator of Grange Hill and Brookside
