With the squeeze on public finances set to continue well into the next parliament, the next government will need to implement policies that are proven to deliver growth and provide value for money. This roundtable during Labour Party Conference will ask just how much policy makers look into ‘what works’ when making decisions around local economic growth and what level of evidence is required to make these decisions.
We are delighted to be joined by Mike Emmerich, Chief Executive, New Economy,Jonathan Breckon, Head of the Alliance for Useful Evidence, and Henry Overman, Director, What Works Centre for Local Economic Growth. The event will be chaired by Andrew Carter, Deputy Chief Executive, Centre for Cities.
This event is by invitation only, if you would like to attend please contact Simon Jeffrey firstname.lastname@example.org for more information.
