City of Culture 2021: Swansea Bid — [Phil Wilson in the Chair] (5 Dec 2017)

John Glen: I thank the hon. Gentleman for his intervention. The independent panel will be looking at a whole variety of factors.

City of Culture 2021: Swansea Bid — [Phil Wilson in the Chair] (5 Dec 2017)

John Glen: Throughout this debate the hon. Gentleman has made a number of passionate interventions showing an encyclopaedic knowledge of Swansea, as anyone would expect, but he is absolutely right on this point.
