One of the issues that the Labour Party will have to address is a new approach to the economy. In my last meeting as Chair of the Constituency Labour Party, I am delighted that we will be having a special debate on the economy and that the award winning economist, Marianna Mazzucato has agreed to speak at an open meeting from 815pm onwards at Camden Town Hall. I hope as many people can join us as possible.
