Lords approve three devo mayors

Before Parliament began its summer recess, the House of Lords approved legislation for three mayoral combined authorities: Liverpool, Sheffield and the West Midlands. However, some Peers, including Labour’s Communities and Local Government Spokesperson, Lord Beecham, did not give the regulations their overwhelming support. During the debate he said: “Huge questions go unanswered about finance, accountability and structures to different degrees in different areas, and we do not know whether the new prime minister, her chancellor and the secretary ​of state share the apparent enthusiasm of their predecessors for this policy.”
