Recent appearances

  • Exiting the European Union: Devolution of Power and Resources: Local Communities 1 Dec 2016

    What recent discussions he has had with Cabinet colleagues on further devolution of power and resources from Whitehall to local communities as part of his Department’s preparations for the UK exiting the EU.
  • Exiting the European Union: Devolution of Power and Resources: Local Communities 1 Dec 2016

    Newcastle voted to remain; the north-east voted to leave, and that is what we are doing, but no one voted to replace regional European support with centralised Whitehall neglect. Will the Minister confirm that, as powers are returned from Brussels, they will be devolved to the regions? Will he agree to meet me and local government representatives in Newcastle to determine how best to achieve that?
