Andy Burnham MP, Shadow Home Secretary, faces a business audience in a special question and answer session at The Radisson Blu Hotel in Manchester to discuss his vision for the future of Greater Manchester if he becomes the first elected Metro Mayor next May (2017).

He is also likely to talk about the future of the Labour Party 2 days ahead of the announcement of the leadership contest and will discuss his views on the region and UK post-Brexit.

The event is staged by the US Financial organisation Duff and Phelps and will also hear from Christian Spence, Head of Policy and Research at the Greater Manchester Chamber of Commerce.
