The debate will be chaired by the award-winning former BBC news journalist and public relations consultant Steve Bustin.

Among the questions that are expected to be addressed are: “Is mixing business and politics a recipe for disaster?

“Should they be kept completely separate, with business allowed to thrive without interference from politicians? Is this even possible?

“Do politicians understand the realities of business or is commerce just another campaign battleground?

“What policies would help or hinder business at a national and local level?

“What role should businesses play in influencing politicians? How should their voice be heard?”
