CBI Supports One Yorkshire

It was good to hear earlier this week that the CBI is supportive of the One Yorkshire devolution proposal. Carolyn Fairbairn, the Director-General of the CBI stated: “We thought the One Yorkshire deal had many of the attributes of the right kind of solution”. She also stated: “The Government needs to explain, really clearly, what its criteria are and where they saw the One Yorkshire deal as having shortcomings.” The Government has so far refused to do this.

From our point of view, it is very heartening that the CBI supports a proper devolution deal for Yorkshire and that business is ready to play its part in getting a deal done as soon as possible.
