In yesterday's debate on local radio, Dean made a strong case for the need to preserve local news in local media outlets. Using BBC Three Counties Radio as an example, the MP asked how such stations could truly call themselves local without their ability to deliver local news.
Dean attended the National Parliamentary Prayer Breakfast and was joined by local Watford faith leaders Reverend George Watt and Pastor Ato Adedoyin. The main speaker was Dr Amy Orr-Ewing, who is an honorary lecturer at the University of Aberdeen School of Divinity.
Dean Russell, MP for Watford, expressed his thanks and appreciation to local news outlets in the Digital Markets Competition and Consumers Bill Committee for their invaluable work in providing local news to Watford residents and the wider community.
