I have joined with other MPs to call for a new ‘Town of Culture’ award to be established to help regenerate local areas. MPs have published an open letter to the Department for Digital, Culture, Media and Sport requesting for the matter to be discussed further.

Currently, towns are eligible to apply for the ‘City of Culture’ award, but they struggle to put forward a bid that can compete with the larger cities that also compete for the award. Cities have the resources they need to put forward a bid and towns would be greatly supported if they had their own category.

The letter states: Read more “Town of Culture award”

I questioned the Government on their plans to move Channel 4 out of London. The promised in their manifesto at the last General Election that they would crack on with the move. However, delays have continued. 

Evidence shows that the move will be worth approximately £600m and I want to see it moved to Salford where it will have the biggest benefit for Delyn residents. 

The Minister tries to make it appear as if Wrexham is in the running for the bidding, when in actual fact it is not. She used this to dodge the question that I put forward.
