Train Operating Companies: Yorkshire — [Dame Cheryl Gillan in the Chair] (19 Dec 2018)

Kevin Hollinrake: ...the same time. That is far more important than the north-south journeys. The critical thing for me is to connect the cities, which gives opportunities to rural areas as well, and the key issue is devolution. The money and the powers should be devolved up to the north, so we do not have to come to Whitehall to ask for the money or to discuss where it should be spent—we should get the...

Lord Hain: ...their alienation, both economic and political, in our current culture. We have identified important areas for reform and have suggested different options.

Johnston Press: Administration (19 Nov 2018)

Alex Sobel: Thanks. One of those papers, The Yorkshire Post, is vital to our campaign for One Yorkshire devolution.

Lord Kirkhope of Harrogate: My Lords, surely it is important to note that the local authorities concerned in South Yorkshire were very keen on having devolution. They were the ones who pressed for it, and the Government responded, as the Government will always do. Is it not now for those authorities and the elected mayor to work with the Government to get that devolution concluded?

John Grogan: ...on the Budget—[Interruption.] No, I want to be generous and have the two good things. Let me start with the two bad things. The first disappointment in the Budget is the lack of mention of Yorkshire devolution. Eighteen out of 20 councils, including many of the leading Tory councils in Yorkshire, God’s own county, have come out in favour of a One Yorkshire devolution deal. We...

Petition - Business Rates Reform: Local Authority Budget Reductions (30 Oct 2018)

Rishi Sunak: ...£24 million. That is not the only incentive for local growth, however, as it sits alongside the Government’s other work to support local authorities’ wider ambitions through local growth and devolution deals.

Brexit: Legislating for the Withdrawal Agreement - Statement (24 Jul 2018)

Lord Wallace of Saltaire: ...increase in their decision making powers as a result of the UK’s exit”. I tried extremely hard, but I could find no reference to the English regions in the document. As the Minister will know, Yorkshire, the north-west and the north-east stand to lose disproportionately more than the rest of England from Brexit, yet there appears to be no awareness that they will also need devolution...
