About our news releases

The news we release concerns issues that affect everyone who lives, works and invests in Manchester and reflect the current position on their content at the time of issue. The releases are sent electronically to newspapers and broadcast media to use in their news bulletins. We are happy for you to reproduce the contents of the releases in your own publications if you wish.
