The first show in the new series is due to be recorded at St Bartholomew’s Church in Ann Street, Brighton, on Thursday (27 September).
The omission comes even though the programme is being recorded in the city served by the country’s only Green-run council.
And in the constituency of the country’s only Green MP, Caroline Lucas, although some have criticised the show’s producers for inviting her to appear too often in the past few years.
The recording is due to take place as the Liberal Democrat party conference leaves town.
But one of the most senior Lib Dems in the government is expected to be on the panel.
The line-up is expected to include
- Danny Alexander, the Lib Dem Chief Secretary to the Treasury
- Harriet Harman, the Deputy Leader of the Labour Party
- Conservative MP Jacob Rees-Mogg
- TV presenter Kirstie Allsopp
- Mehdi Hasan, the political director of the Huffington Post website, or Brighton comedian Steve Coogan
The panel will be chaired by veteran broadcaster David Dimbleby, who lives just outside Polegate.
Production company Mentorn, which makes Question Time, has asked audience members to come up with two provocative and topical questions.
They have been asked to arrive by 6.30pm and are expected to leave at about 9.30pm, with the show being broadcast on BBC1 just over an hour later after the news.
