RSA calls for more ‘grown-up’ devolution

The RSA published its interim report on Inclusive Growth last week, and in it suggested that the government ‘create a road map’ for inclusive devolution, which would acknowledge that not all areas of policy should be devolved.
The Emerging Findings report also suggested investment in ‘social’ infrastructure, inclusive industrial strategies, and more accurate data and measurement of ‘quality GVA’ are important for inclusive growth.
The Inclusive Growth Commission, chaired by ex-BBC economics editor Stephanie Flanders, is the successor to the RSA’s City Growth Commission, which spurned the city-region devolution deals that have been struck over the past two years.
