Hot on the heels of the successful Candidates Q A ahead of March's state election, the Tenterfield Chamber of Tourism, Industry and Business is rolling out the welcome mat for New England's federal election candidates, for a Q A on Wednesday, April 24.

The format will be similar to the earlier one, in which audience members can pose questions to the desk on set topics, in this case climate, education, health, economy and immigration. Harry Bolton will again moderate the forum.

Five candidates are in the running, and three have confirmed their participation. They are independent Adam Blakester, Labor's Cindy Duncan and United Australia Party's Yvonne Langenberg.

Chamber representatives have been in touch with incumbent Barnaby Joyce for the Nationals who couldn't commit to the dates offered, but it is hoped he will wish to avoid a notable absence and be involved as well.

The Greens' candidate Tony Lonergan is also yet to commit.

The doors will open at 6.30pm for a 7pm start.

Members of the public are welcome to attend, and invitations will also be going out to chamber members and via Tenterfield Shire Council.

Anyone requiring further information or with topics/questions they would like to see included can email the chamber at, or call committee chair Chris Jones on 0414 476 268.
