|Sir Norman: "Ambitious plans"|
Meanwhile, TMB Books (the board's publishing arm) is planning a follow-up to Forgotten Lancashire and Part of Cheshire and the Wirral, the 2012 publication which single-handedly revived the tripe industry in Lancashire. Sir Norman could not confirm the title of the proposed follow-up, but said it "might" cover another county that "wasn't a million miles from Lancashire, Cheshire or the Wirral."
At the same time, Sir Norman announced that the TMB's official historian Dr Derek Ripley had been commissioned to write a history of the Tripe Marketing Board, provisionally entitled A History of the Tripe Marketing Board. "We'll take advice on that, though," Sir Norman said. "Someone has suggested a more racy title - The Complete and Utter Truth About Tripe," he said.
