One Yorkshire Leaders respond to Northern Powerhouse Minister

14 January 2019

Responding to comments from the Northern Powerhouse Minister on devolution to the North of England, One Yorkshire Leaders have issued the following joint statement: "In the One Yorkshire devolution proposal, we have a ready-made plan to bring decision-making closer to more than five million people, building on a shared identity and an established global brand."

"As the Northern Powerhouse Minister considers the post-Brexit settlement for the North of England, we hope he and his colleagues in Government will work with us to deliver a devolution deal which could add £30bn a year to the economy of the region, the North and the UK."
