Mayors, MPs and ministers: Can they work together?

Tuesday, April 25, 2017 - 12:30

The election of ‘metro mayors’ will result in a new group of powerful leaders engaging with Westminster MPs and ministers. So how can they all work together to get the best for local areas?

This event, the final in our series on local leadership, explored if metro mayors have the right powers, how scrutiny and accountability arrangements will work, and how we can judge their success.

On our expert panel included:

  • Clive Betts, MP for Sheffield South East, Chair of the Communities and Local Government Select Committee
  • Jim McMahon OBE, MP for Oldham West and Royton, Shadow Minister for Local Government & Devolution
  • Andrew Carter, Chief Executive Officer of Centre for Cities
  • Jacqui McKinlay, Chief Executive of Centre for Public Scrutiny

The event was chaired by Dr Jo Casebourne, Director of Development, Institute for Government.

This event was livestreamed.
