Ed Miliband Expresses Support for “One Yorkshire”

In a report in Monday’s Yorkshire Post, the former Labour leader was quoted as saying that he was “pretty agnostic” about calls to devolve powers to Yorkshire rather than Sheffield City Region but when he heard the “loud voice” from Doncaster residents and businesses in support of Yorkshire devolution he changed his mind in favour of “One Yorkshire”.

Transforming Yorkshire recognises that linking the diverse economies and communities of our region presents huge opportunities in terms of scale, connectivity and interaction. As far as we are concerned, it is great news when another prominent politician also comes around to this way of thinking. The sooner the government is convinced, the sooner we can start making an even greater contribution to the UK as a whole.
