To ask the Secretary of State for Business, Innovation and Skills what response he plans to give to the offer from Liverpool City Region Local Enterprise Partnership that its Employment and Skills Board should be recognised as the single voice on employment and skills matters in the Liverpool City Region in return for a commitment to undertake activities in direct support of the Government's growth agenda.

I welcome the proposals that the Liverpool City Region Local Enterprise Partnership has brought forward with regard to the role of its Employment and Skills Board. I am exploring these ideas further in the context of my wider discussions with Liverpool—and other cities—around developing bespoke deals between them and the Government to drive growth.
