Description

Annual Conference 2017 - The Labour Party


In the wake of Brexit and the snap election, the country arguably faces a more uncertain future than at any time in recent history. More than ever, there is a real need for a clear statement of intent on ensuring Britain’s continued growth. The proposal for a modern Industrial Strategy aimed at securing Britain’s future as a competitive, global nation is a response to this need, with the promise of driving growth across the UK with the creation of highly skilled, highly paid jobs. The focus of the event, with a panel including Gordon Marsden MP, Shadow Minister for Further Education, will be an exploration of the crucial role a devolved infrastructure will have to play in delivering inclusive growth, examining how the Industrial Strategy can benefit from being truly geographical in its focus and how it can develop ways of ensuring that economically disadvantaged areas are incorporated into Britain’s growth strategy.


Chair:

Will Dunn, New Statesman Special Projects Editor


Speakers:

Gordon Marsden MP - Shadow Minister for Education

Chi Onwurah MP - Shadow Minister for Industrial Strategy

Andy Pike - Director, Centre for Urban and Regional Development Studies (CURDS), Newcastle University
