MSP in Drugs Debate

MAVERICK MSP Tommy Sheridan is being lined up to appear at a question-time style drugs debate in Stranraer.

The Scottish Socialist Party leader is one of a number of high-profile names organisers are hoping will appear at the debate which will go ahead in just over a month's time.

Camera crews from both the BBC and Border Television are expected to cover the event.

Organisers hope that local MPs and MSPs will appear too, along with Dumfries and Galloway Chief Constable David Strang and Turning Point's local manager Tom McIntosh.

Local pressure group Stranraer Against Drugs are behind the project which they hope will lead to a full and open debate on Wigtownshire's well-known drug misuse problem.

Gaille McCann from Glasgow group Mothers' Against Drugs will also be a panellist, following her successful talk at a Stranraer Against Drugs meeting in March.
