The Gazette is going to give our readers the chance to ask politicians of all stripes from the area for their views on the issues hitting the headlines.

Following a suggestion from a reader, we plan to run a regular feature in which we put your questions to politicians in the Berwick constituency.

The aim is that readers can ask a question or raise an issue that has been in the news, but get answers from local representatives about how it affects north Northumberland.

Hopefully, it can provide a local view rather than just a national overview of policies, issues or talking points that are in the public eye.

We will be putting the questions to the candidates that stood in the constituency at last May’s General Election for the Lib Dems, Labour, Ukip and the Greens as well as the current MP, Anne-Marie Trevelyan.

If you would like to submit a question for the politicians, contact Ben O’Connell on 01665 602234 or email ben.oconnell@jpress.co.uk
We will select a topical question and each politician will be given the same word count for their response.
