Andy Burnham needs 'more extensive powers to bring about substantial change' in Greater Manchester

Andy Burnham needs to be handed more extensive powers to bring about substantial change in Greater Manchester, according to a new study.

"We conclude in the book that whilst the powers that the metro mayors have are limited and they have insufficient resources, it was absolutely the right thing to do to seize that opportunity within the context of an extremely centralised political system. And one of the book’s key themes is how both mayors have evolved the power of their office, specifically around transport in respective cities.

"It's interesting that transport is the only really hard power the mayors have," added Professor Evans.
