Adjournment (February, Easter, May Day and Whitsun): Devolution: Yorkshire (10 Oct 2017)

Jake Berry: I congratulate the hon. Member for Keighley (John Grogan) on securing such an important debate. In May this year, just five months ago, six metro mayors were elected to the combined authorities in England. Those six mayors—three in the northern powerhouse—have the power to create jobs, improve skills, drive forward their local economy and improve transport. Already they are...

Adjournment (February, Easter, May Day and Whitsun): Devolution: Yorkshire (10 Oct 2017)
