The poster for the event, to take place on Tuesday, May 23, at the college, includes the names of some of the other candidates.

When asked whether she would be attending, she said: “Unfortunately, I won’t be at the college due to a prior commitment. Originally the date I was given for the hustings was Monday and not the Tuesday. As a champion of West Suffolk College I will be sorry not to attend.”

Bill Edwards (Labour), Helen Geake (Green Party) and Helen Korfanty (Liberal Democrat) are all attending, according to the poster. However Independent candidate Liam Byrne said he had not been told about it or invited.
