I put it to the Leader that we need to have a debate on such information might be provided. He is very much aware of the issues on the ground. I am of the view that we need to start discussing the spread of false information and that we need to start informing the public. When they vote on 14 May, they will voting on very significant issues. Not only will they be voting in the European elections, they will also be deciding whether the cities to which I refer will have directly-elected mayors. A referendum commission could provide people with the relevant information in this regard in order to empower them and allow them to form opinions.
