The debate into Scotland's future is ongoing

BBC Scotland is appealing for members of the public to join its audience for a debate on the future of Scotland.

The television special will take place on Sunday, 27 May - two days after First Minister Alex Salmond announces details of his "yes" campaign.

Both the Scottish and UK governments have held consultations into the issues surrounding the referendum.

SNP leader and First Minister Alex Salmond has named autumn 2014 as his preferred date to hold the vote.

The venue for the debate, featuring a panel of politicians and experts, will be BBC Scotland's Glasgow headquarters at Pacific Quay.

If you are interested in joining the audience, fill in the form below.

People wishing to take part will need to arrive at 17:00 be available for the programme between 18:00 and 19:30.

Guidelines require the BBC to have a balanced audience for this event.

To help us do this, we will ask all members of the audience whether they are associated with a political party or if they already have a favoured view on whether Scotland should become independent or remain part of the UK.
