Javid wants Yorkshire devolution agreed in 2017

LOCAL GOVERNMENT Secretary Sajid Javid has pledged to work with council leaders to end Yorkshire’s devolution deadlock by the end of the year.

Mr Javid rejected the ‘One Yorkshire’ devolution plan in its current form but did not rule out the idea of striking a single agreement for the whole region.

He also left open the possibility of other arrangements such as a West Yorkshire or Leeds City Region ‘devolution deal’ alongside the existing agreement covering the Sheffield City Region area.

  1. I can understand Sajid Javid wishes to close the devolution deal and is pushing hard for an agreement. I wonder, however, if he is aware of the woeful lack of consultation with the vast majority of people who may be affected by devolution i.e. the general public ?? I never saw any “online” consultation re this matter ! I wonder how many people in Rotherham either saw or responded to this consultation ??
