Podcast published on 15 July 2016

Full audio of our event in Manchester discussing priorities for the new Mayor of the city region, who will be elected in May 2017. The discussion touched on how the new Mayor can encourage greater participation in local democracy, the challenges following the vote to leave the European Union, and proposals to create a ‘cabinet of the North’ formed of mayors of northern city regions who will be able to champion and deliver the Northern Powerhouse.

On the panel were Andy Burnham MP, Prospective Labour candidate for Mayor of Greater Manchester, Prof Francesca Gains, Professor of Public Policy at the University of Manchester, and Clive Memmott, Chief Executive of the Greater Manchester Chamber of Commerce.
