MP Michael Gove, the former education and justice secretary, is going head-to head with a top economics and immigration academic to thrash out their differences in the role of "experts".

Moderated by Julia Hartley-Brewer, ​Mr Gove will take on Professor Jonathan Portes who he challenged to a public debate​ following a Twitter spat ​the two had over the issue earlier this year. 

Mr Portes is professor of economics and public policy at King’s College London, and a senior fellow of the UK in a Changing Europe programme.

This live event is scheduled to begin at 19:30 GMT
