Urgent Question on Kerslake Arena Review

28 March 2018

Lucy Powell, MP for Manchester Central, asked an Urgent Question in the House of Commons on the Kerslake Arena Review.

The question was responded to by Ben Wallce, Minster for Security and Economic Crime, who spoke about the Mayor of Greater Manchester's independent review, and praised the response of emergency service personnel.

Lucy Powell stated that the review makes hard reading in parts, but it is heart-warming in others, and that there are clear lessons for Greater Manchester, and particularly for the fire service to learn.
