We want a productive and courteous debate with lots of questions from undecided voters, so please encourage along as many as possible. People tell us they want to hear both arguments in one room, and this may be their only opportunity for an open public debate in Glasgow before the referendum. We will be videoing the debate tonight and will have online asap. Meanwhile, you can follow the debate on social media using the hashtag #BigIndyDebate Radisson Blu, Argyle Street, Glasgow. Doors open 7pm. No entrance before.
