22 April 2017: The Future of Local Devolution – Dinner with James Palmer

Join us on Saturday 22nd April to hear the Conservative Mayoral candidate for Cambridgeshire and Peterborough outline his views on the future of local devolution, which is a hugely topical debate at present. Local Peterborough MP Stewart Jackson will also be in attendence and will be talking about his role as PPS to Rt Hon David Davis MP (Secretary of State for Exiting the European Union). It promises to be an extremely interesting and thought provoking dinner.

The election will take place on 4th May and will be the first of its kind. The new Mayor will have significant powers of transport, infrasture, skills and housing, overseeing an annual budget of £20million for the next 30 years (£600 million). In addition, they will oversee a £170 million housing budget.

We will meet outside Peterborough train station for a short spot of campaigning from 12:30 and will then have dinner at the Great Northern hotel from 5pm. It takes under an hour to get from London Kings Cross to Peterborough and the Great Northern is right next to Peterborough station.

The dinner itself will be £25 for three courses.
