This is desirable in order to strengthen the Union and make the United Kingdom a fairer and better place for its inhabitants.
In order to help achieve this, Council believes that it would be beneficial for the House of Commons to meet in major cities in the United Kingdom, such as Liverpool, Glasgow, Birmingham, Newcastle, Edinburgh, Belfast and Cardiff at least once every four years.

Council instructs the Chief Executive to write to the Prime Minister, the Speaker of the House of Commons and the Leaders of all political parties represented in the Commons to put this proposal and invite to House of Commons to Liverpool to sit and see Liverpool.
