Listen again: Northern powerhouse: spin or substance?

Felicity Slater

This Labour party conference fringe event, in partnership with Heathrow, explored the idea of the northern powerhouse, in particular whether it can reduce the north-south divide, and the political opportunities for Labour.

We were joined by: Conor McGinn MP (opposition whip), Nick Forbes (leader, Newcastle council), John Holland-Kaye (chief executive, Heathrow), Jessica Studdert (deputy director, New Local Government Network), Tony Travers (professor, LSE Department of Government), chair: Olivia Bailey (research director, Fabian Society).
