QUESTION Time is the BBC’s long-running political debate show where members of the public get the chance to grill politicians and leading figures.
The show has been running since September 1979 and is currently hosted by Fiona Bruce. Here’s who is on the panel tonight, November 7, which comes from Glasgow.
Who's on Question Time tonight?
Kirstene Hair, 30, is a Scottish Conservative Party politician. She was elected as the Member of Parliament for Angus in the 2017 general election.
In the UK Parliament, she has been a member of the Scottish Affairs Select Committee, Home Affairs Select Committee, and Women and Equalities Committee.
She is a member of the Regulatory Reform Committee since November 2017.
Hair has previously admitted she didn’t vote in the EU referendum – saying it was because making a decision on Brexit was “very difficult”.
She said she left the choice to “everyone else” and decided to go with the “will of the UK” rather than pick a side herself.
She told The Courier newspaper: "I didn't vote on Brexit.
"I took the decision not to vote on it. It was incredibly difficult. The first time I've never voted in my life.
"It was very difficult because you get two arguments, very strong on both sides.
"I just ultimately couldn't make that decision and I thought I would therefore go with the will of the UK which if I'm honest I thought we would remain.
"But I left that to everyone else."
Barry Gardiner, 62, is a British Labour Party politician serving as Shadow Secretary of State for International Trade since 2016.
He has also served as Member of Parliament for Brent North since 1997.
Gardiner served under Tony Blair and Gordon Brown as a junior minister in the Northern Ireland Office, the Department for Productivity, Energy and Industry, the Department of Trade and Industry and finally in the Department for Environment, Food and Rural Affairs.
Earlier this year, Gardiner said: "I have been somebody who has really resisted going to a public vote… but I am more concerned about a no-deal Brexit."
Humza Yousaf MSP is a Scottish National Party politician who has been Cabinet Secretary for Justice since June 2018.
He is also the Member of the Scottish Parliament for Glasgow Pollok since 2016.

He was Minister for Transport and the Islands from 2016 until 2018.
Yousaf has previously said that "any form of Brexit would be devastating for Scotland, costing jobs, slashing economic growth, reducing our working-age population and driving down living standards".
He also said Brexit "opens the way to Scotland being flooded with the likes of chlorinated chicken and hormone-injected beef from the US".
