Steve Rotheram: Metro Mayors will champion the needs of their city regions

   on September 13, 2016, posted in Liverpool City Region categories

Labour’s candidate for Liverpool Metro Mayor, Steve Rotheram MP has written an article for Politics Home, in which he argues that the Prime Minister, Theresa May should not renege on current plans for the Northern Powerhouse. While stating that the current devolution deal provides “an opportunity to direct and join together programmes” to support economic growth in the north of England, he says that any reduction in the amount of Government funding available to Metro Mayors would render the proposals “meaningless.”
