The Centre for Cities and the Political Studies Association are holding a joint press briefing on the upcoming elections for metro mayors across England.
Exactly one month before voters in Cambridgeshire and Peterborough, the Liverpool City Region, Greater Manchester, the West of England, West Midlands and the Tees Valley head to the polls on 4 May 2017, leading analysts and political scientists share their insights and what to expect from these inaugural mayoral elections.
Please note this event is for journalists only.
Paul Swinney (Principal Economist, Centre for Cities): Analysis of the economic outlook in each of the combined authorities, what powers the mayors will have to effect change and what the policy priorities in each place should be.
Professor John Curtice (University of Strathclyde): Analysis on the 2015 General Election baseline for each mayoral area, and the latest polling, as well as an overview of the runners and riders in each contest and prospects for turnout based on previous non-London Mayoral contests.
Professor Tony Travers (Director, LSE London): Lessons from London’s Mayoral contests, plus wider implications for British politics.
