How big a problem is civic and economic powerlessness in the UK? How has this impacted towns and smaller communities? What can politicians do to address this? These are some of the key questions addressed by Lisa Nandy MP in her new book, “All In: How We Build A Country That Works”. In it, the shadow levelling up secretary argues communities should have more control to address issues that matter to them.

In our latest Power Hour series looking at key women in public life, we will be chatting to Lisa about her new book, her 12-year career in politics as the first female MP for Wigan, and ambitions for the future.

Chaired by Kezia Dugdale, there will be plenty of time for audience Q&A. The John Smith Centre exists to make the positive case for politics and public service.
