Devolution: Yorkshire and the Humber

Ministry of Housing, Communities and Local Government written question – answered on 20th November 2018

John Grogan Labour, Keighley

To ask the Secretary of State for Housing, Communities and Local Government, what assessment he has made of the effect of the proposals for One Yorkshire devolution on the Yorkshire economy.

Jake Berry Parliamentary Under-Secretary (Housing, Communities and Local Government)

We are considering the material provided.

The Government has already agreed a devolution deal for the Sheffield City Region. We look forward to this being implemented in full. It will bring £900 million of much needed new funding to the city region, and put power in the hands of local people.
