Devolution: is it all just smoke and mirrors?
6:30pm, Thursday 23rd February 2017
Mining Institute
Neville Hall
Westgate Rd
Newcastle upon Tyne NE1 1SE

The relocation of power away from the centre has major implications for society. Will the government's devolution agenda benefit the North East? Will it enable us to secure much needed investment in our infrastructure? Should we embrace or resist it? We invite anyone interested to discuss the policy changes needed to ensure that devolution works for people, the economy and the environment of the North East.

Professor Andy Pike
, Director of CURDS, Newcastle University
Jonathan Spruce, Fore Consulting
Lord Shipley, Shadow Minister for Housing

Chair: Caspar Hewett, Director, The Great Debate

Tickets: 3 (FREE for students) - price includes buffet and an after-debate drink
