Liberal Democrat leader Nick Clegg says he is delighted that dates have been set for a debate with Ukip leader Nigel Farage on the European Union.
The fiercely pro-European Deputy Prime Minister challenged Mr Farage to a debate a fortnight ago, and the announcement of the arrangements came as Mr Clegg used a speech in London to ramp up his attack on the eurosceptic party's leader.
"I am delighted that it has been confirmed that these debates will happen. I'm relishing the prospect of talking about how the Liberal Democrats are fighting to keep Britain in Europe to protect British jobs while Ukip want to yank us out and threaten our recovery." The Deputy Prime Minister said.
