June 10 elections: Ask the parties
You put your questions to Home Office minister Hazel Blears (Labour), Alan Duncan (Conservative), and Lord Rennard (Liberal Democrats) in an interactive forum.

You also put your questions to Hugo Charlton (Greens), Damian Hockney (UKIP) and political analyst Tony Travers from the London School of Economics in a second forum which looked at the smaller parties.

Thursday 10 June will see elections held across the UK for local councils, European parliament and the London assembly.

The elections represent a huge test of popular opinion for the political parties as they prepare for the General Election.

For Tony Blair, Michael Howard and Charles Kennedy, the elections will also be crucial in terms of re-enforcing their leadership.

Whereas other political parties will see this as a clear opportunity to get political recognition.

Why should people vote in the elections? How do the parties differ in their manifestos?
