ITV today announced a multi-party debate which will take place on Thursday 13th June 2024 at 8.30pm.

Leaders or senior representatives from the Conservative Party, Labour Party, Liberal Democrats, SNP, Reform UK, Green Party and Plaid Cymru will participate.

The debate, moderated by Julie Etchingham, will run for 90 minutes.

“ITV’s debate programmes will allow millions of viewers to see and hear the politicians debate the big issues facing the country. Many of our viewers tell us they greatly value the TV debates,” said Michael Jermey, ITV’s Director of News and Current Affairs.

“We’re pleased that ITV will be able to provide a forum in which voters can question the political leaders and in which the politicians can debate directly with each other.”

ITV will also broadcast the first head-to-head General Election debate, Sunak v Starmer: The ITV Debate on Tuesday 4th June at 9pm.

That programme will be followed by The ITV Election Interviews presented by Anushka Asthana at 10.10pm.

The leaders of the Liberal Democrats, the SNP, Reform UK and the Greens have been invited to take part. An interview with the leader of Plaid Cymru will also be aired that evening in Wales.
