Mayor for Birmingham

29th October 2007

Campaigners for an elected mayor in Birmingham have taken to the city's streets seeking supporters. The campaign is backed by Liam Byrne MP, who is also the Minister for the West Midlands.

He said: "If you look at London it's a city on the move, there's a sense of direction and Birmingham would benefit from the same thing."

Ken Livingstone is currently the elected mayor of London, while other cities with elected mayors include Stoke-on-Trent.

Campaigners need to secure 36,000 signatures before they can get a referendum on the issue.

Among prominent figures so far touted for the job are Karen Brady, the managing director of Birmingham City Football Club, and Sir Digby Jones, the former head of the CBI and now a trade minister in the House of Lords.
