THE Young Farmers’ Clubs of Ulster (YFCU) is holding a big debate on Monday 3rd December 2012 in the Senate Chamber, Stormont.

Kindly supported by Danske Bank, the big debate will see invited guest speakers argue the motion “this house believes NI agriculture could survive outside the EU”.

Invited audience members will also have the opportunity to join in the debate from the floor.

John Henning, head of agri relations at Danske Bank, said: “We are delighted to continue supporting the YFCU as a Platinum Sponsor and we look forward to our involvement with ‘The big debate’ at Stormont.

“This new event in the Association’s calendar promises to be both lively and informative with some high profile speakers invited to participate. The involvement of several YFCU members will also demonstrate the high standard of debating and expertise within the membership to a wider audience.

“It is entirely appropriate that the first YFCU event to be sponsored under the Danske Bank umbrella should be such an exciting one which is guaranteed to attract many leaders and stakeholders in Northern Ireland agriculture.”

William Wilson, YFCU president, commented: “I would like to take this opportunity to thank Danske Bank for their support and involvement with the YFCU, and in particular, with the big debate. I am looking forward to hearing what should prove to be a lively debate in the magnificent surroundings of the Senate Chamber in Parliament Buildings.”

Invited guests should note that entrance to the chamber is from 6.30pm and the call to order will be at 7.30pm sharp. All guests must produce their invite at security to gain admittance on the evening.
