Speakers will include:
- Catherine Stihler, MEP for Scotland
- Marianella Salapatas, President of the EFA European Federation of Allergy and Airways Diseases Patients' Associations;

Each speaker will set out their thoughts on this issue for 10-15 minutes, looking particularly at what Scotland can learn from other EU countries and vice versa.
