Punchline Talks - Richard Graham faces the day's big questions

Work will begin on the regeneration of King's Square next month according to Gloucester MP Richard Graham.

Mr Graham was talking to Punchline-Gloucester.com editor Mark Owen in the first of a series of Punchline Talks videos which will see leading business, political and community figures face five topical questions.

Fresh plans for the King's Quarter development were unveiled during Gloucester Day.

Digital Forum at heart of £85m King's Quarter plan 

Mr Graham said: "There's been lots of false dawns on King's Square over the years. People in Gloucester are pretty sceptical, they'll believe it when they see it.

"This time round is different - work begins in the middle of October."

As well as the plans for the new digital quarter, Mr Graham discussed fresh financing for changes to Gloucester Railway Station - which were also unveiled on Saturday - the end of the furlough scheme, Brexit and the Gloucestershire Jobs, Skills and Apprenticeships Lift Off which takes place at Kingsholm on Friday.
