Aylsham Any Questions panel named

Health secretary Andrew Lansley is among the panellists when BBC's topical discussion radio programme Any Questions broadcasts from Aylsham on Friday night.

It is a return for Conservative Mr Lansley who was also on the team when the show last came to the town in 2005, when he held the shadow health role.

He is joined this time by Labour's Margaret Hodge, chairman of the watchdog public accounts committee, Phillip Blond director of the ResPublica think tank tackling social and economic problems, and Matthew Taylor chief executive of the Royal Society for encouragement of the Arts, Manufactures and Commerce, which promotes human fulfilment and social progress.

A sell-out 300-strong crowd will fill Aylsham's Jubilee Centre for the debate which is broadcast live on BBC Radio 4 at 8pm.

The 2005 show, which came during the election campaign and focused on Welsh devolution, saw placard-waving fox hunt ban protesters jeer Labour's then Leader of the Commons Peter Hain, a prominent anti-hunting supporter, as he left the event at the high school.
