‘No deal on devolution is my biggest frustration’ – South Yorkshire mayor Dan Jarvis latest on deadlock on devolved deal
Sheffield City Region Mayor Dan Jarvis has said Government not engaging with devolution has been his ‘biggest frustration’ since he passed 100 days in office. The mayor said he is working on a three-pronged devolution strategy to get the 2015 South Yorkshire deal signed, push for greater mayoral powers and pursue a wider county deal with the rest of Yorkshire, all by 2020.
