BBC Radio York – Julian discusses Parliament Moving to York

July 18, 2020

Julian spoke to Georgey Spanswick on Breakfast on BBC Radio York to discuss the revelation that York is being considered as a site for Parliament while the Palace of Westminster is renovated.

Speaking to the York Press on this issue, Julian said:

“While we should always be careful about drawing conclusions from leaked information, the fact York is being considered in this way is obviously a huge tribute to our city.

As I understand it, York is suggested as one of a number of options, including several London locations.

The proposed use of the York Central site underscores the enormous potential of this redevelopment project, and is a clear reminder that local decisionmakers must keep this on track to secure the best future for York.

This idea, and the wider consideration of York as a place to relocate civil service jobs to form a new ‘government hub’ here, reflect our city’s status as a well-connected, liveable city, and its historic role as the capital of Northern England.

Although any move is a long way away, and would rightly depend on cost, it is reassuring that York is rated so highly by the top of government, something I will certainly take advantage of to ensure our community gets the support we need to rebuild from coronavirus”
