The Institute of Hospitality Scotland (IHOS) debate has announced details of a debate on the potential effects on the industry of the Scottish independence referendum.
Other organisers of Beyond the Referendum - "What are our politicians planning?" are the British Hospitality Association, Scottish Licensed Trade Association and Scottish Tourism Alliance.
"We have invited government along this time. And we will be challenging both sides - Yes and No," says Ray Lorimer, IHOS chair. "Given the way the polls are going, it promises to be a lively discussion."
The line-up of politicians and panellists include: Fergus Ewing, MSP and Minister for Energy, Enterprise and Tourism; David Mundell, MP and Under Secretary of State for Scotland; Rebecca Brooks, director at Abbey Tours Scotland, Michael Fry, founder Wealthy Nation and Katie Corrigan, head of hospitality & leisure at Tods Murray Solicitors.
They will debate five areas that impinge on the hospitality industry: Scotland's relationship with the rest of the UK; fiscal autonomy and fallout from decisions about the pound; the economy, such as borrowing, insurance, capital investment; whether regulation or deregulation is being planned; and whether there is a credible alternative to independence.
The debate will be held on Tuesday 20 May at Glasgow Caledonian University. Admission is £15. To register and for further details, call the Cook School on
