    "in discussion" or "at discussion"

    Hi, just wanted some expert advice on a query regarding the following sentence:

    "... the dull mundanity of the issues ___ discussion."

    Should the gap be filled by by 'in' or 'at' or are either acceptable?

    Many thanks in advance for your assistance.

    Welcome to the forum, earlyamerican.

    I'd use 'under'
