C4 News: Ways To Change The World – ‘Deep devolution to all parts of the UK is the answer’ – Andy Burnham, Mayor of Greater Manchester


17 July 2021

Excellent discussion

Andy Burnham has held many senior cabinet positions and stood for the Labour leadership twice, before leaving Westminster and becoming Mayor of Greater Manchester in 2017.
