Steve Richards in conversation with...Vince Cable


The Lib Dem conference begins this weekend and so too does The Independent's series of fringe meetings sponsored by RSA Insurance Group. We kick off on the evening of Monday 16 September, when The Independent's esteemed political columnist Steve Richards will sit down with Secretary of State for Business, Innovation and Skills, Vince Cable.

The Business Secretary has been in the news lately over his Help To Buy concerns, his comments on complacency over the economic recovery and his "contradictory evidence" about the export of chemicals to Syria.

This is your opportunity to steer the conversation round to these topics or any others you think are important. Please submit any questions you'd to be considered for inclusion in the Q&A in the comments section below.
