Hank Roberts, Brent branch secretary of the Association of Teachers and Lecturers (ATL), and his wife Jean are organising the debate following the proposal by Oakington Manor in Wembley and Furness in Harlesden.

Everyone is invited to take part in the forum where those for and against the plans can speak publicly.
