Greater Manchester no longer has a Police and Crime Commissioner. The Mayor of Greater Manchester has now taken responsibility for policing and crime.

Wigan pupils quiz the Commissioner

Tony Lloyd speaks to The Deanery school

Tony took part in a question and answer session at Deanery High School in Wigan today (Wednesday 10 April).

Pupils on the Citizenship course, quizzed a panel made up of Wigan Mayor Councillor Myra Whiteside, teacher and Councillor Seve Gomez-Aspron, Chair of School Governors Reverend Hutchinson and Tony.

Tony said: “This was an extremely valuable session and the young people fielded a number of thoughtful questions, allowing for a lively and interesting discussion on a broad range of important topics ranging from sex trafficking to recycling. It’s really important that we listen to our young people, empower them to get involved in decision-making, encourage them to put forward their ideas on how we can solve some of society’s ills, such as cyber-bullying and work with them to build better, safer communities.”
