Thanks for joining us for what has been an interesting and far-reaching debate.
- Coverage of the BBC Radio Lancashire debate about the 2017 general election
- Neil Darby (Lib Dems), Mark Hendrick (Lab), Paul White (Con), Simon Platt (Ukip) and Tina Rothery (Green) taking part
- Debate held at Preston's Avenham Pavilion
- Updates from Thursday 1 June
Paul White of the Conservatives says:Quote Message: Conservatives are in favour of fracking where there is a benefit and revenue for the local community.Quote Message: I'm glad to see transport in northern England improving as linking east to west is key to the prosperity of the area.
Ukip's Simon Platt says:Quote Message: In terms of transport - HS2 is a vanity project that won't do us any favours in Northern England.Quote Message: We are in favour of localism and local links.
Labour's Mark Hendrick says:Quote Message: We want to bring back public ownership of the railways.Quote Message: We want HS2 to link the North and South and have a crossrail of the North from Manchester to Leeds, so we can all benefit from it.Quote Message: Climate change is also a key issue.
Liberal Democrats Neil Darby says:Quote Message: It was a massive insult to people of Lancashire that the government overturned the council's decision not to frack.Quote Message: We oppose fracking.
The Green Party's Tina Rothery says:Quote Message: There's such indignity in the way we make rural communities live with no buses or post offices.Quote Message: We want to make local transport free for the elderly, disabled and young.Quote Message: Fracking is a key issue in Fylde - there will be 500 vehicle movements per frack and the infrastructure will not deal with that. By the time they abandon the wells and realise, we'll be left to pick up the bill.
The final subject of the evening for the panel is transport and the environment.
BBC Radio Lancashire listeners had this to say on the topic:
Ukip's Simon Platt says:Quote Message: The biggest item in our budget is for the NHS. We have a proposal to fund additional nursing and medical training services.Quote Message: Part of our plan is also to combine the NHS and care services, so we have joined-up thinking.
Labour's Mark Hendrick says:Quote Message: Staff are working hard but are demoralised - but they have had an effective 14% pay cut. NHS workers' rights need to stay the same and be protected.Quote Message: We will invest £8bn with £1bn for elderly care.
The Liberal Democrats' Neil Darby says:Quote Message: We will put an extra £6bn funding into the NHS with £1bn going to mental health services - it'll mean that you have to pay 1p in £1 extra on income tax.Quote Message: It is important and needs to be funded properly.
Tina Rothery of the Green Party says:Quote Message: The people own the NHS. The Conservatives have been in power for seven years and have got it terribly wrong.Quote Message: There's begging for beds [and] no care in the community, so people are stuck in hospital.Quote Message: The previous government got it wrong and patients are paying the price.
Conservative Paul White says:Quote Message: There is an aging population and the NHS needs more support - it's how we deal with that. Hospitals are under increasing strain - there are issues with seeing a GP.Quote Message: The places that will be least affected (by the demantia cap) are places in Lancashire, because of the income and life savings being low - it's people from areas like that, they will do well.
The panel is asked about the issues around health and social care.
BBC Radio Lancashire's listeners had this to say:
Labour's Mark Hendrick says:Quote Message: We accept the outcome of the referendum. If the British people said leave, we leave.Quote Message: We need to get the best possible deal. No deal is a bad deal. Without one, if we want to export or import, severe tariffs will cost us up and down this country.Quote Message: We want to keep good environment and food standards - and we need our neighbours.
Liberal Democrat Neil Darby says:Quote Message: Twelve months ago, no-one knew what leave meant and we still don't know what leave means. We're being asked to blindly trust the government to get the best deal.Quote Message: What should happen is the government goes and negotiate and then come back with the best deal [and] we want to then go back to the people and ask them if they agree with the deal.Quote Message: It's right for the people to have the final say.
The Green Party's Tina Rothery says:Quote Message: I went through the Brexit vote dazed and confused.Quote Message: The side of the buses were so clearly a lie. I felt bemused by the end of it because of the mixed messages.Quote Message: For me, it is as if I've agreed to go out for dinner but you haven't told me if I'm having fast food or luxury cuisine.
Paul White of the Conservatives says:Quote Message: Theresa May has set out a clear plan on how she would like to conduct negotiations.Quote Message: She's saying anything is on the table here and we have got to fight for the the best deal.
Ukip's Simon Platt says:Quote Message: We have a bright future outside the EU.Quote Message: We can be a self-governing nation again, trading with the world on friendly terms... and we'll have a Brexit bonus at just under £10bn.
The panel is asked to discuss the issues around Brexit.
BBC Radio Lancashire's listeners had this to say:
Neil Darby of the Liberal Democrats says:Quote Message: As young as aged six, you can tell what a child's future is likely to hold based on whether they are from a wealthy or less well off background.Quote Message: We want to triple the early years premium.Quote Message: At the moment, too many people are not paying what they're due in tax and we need to try and make sure those who have more money contribute more to the system.
