Westminster this week
The N8 Universities event on Monday promises to show good examples of the collaborative working that underpins so much of what the northern powerhouse is about. Leeds, Liverpool, York, Sheffield, Newcastle, Lancaster, Durham and Manchester universities are all coming together to showcase their collective skills of research and innovation. I also have meetings at the department for transport. We have multiple commons debates and I have meetings galore most notably the events on Wednesday to support apprenticeships, and in support of dementia research and treatment as organised by the Alzheimer's society.
