I have visited several areas in the North and received a large number of representations and the sector which does an incredibly important job in supporting communities in the North.

The North is more dependent on public sector income than the Midlands and the South, that is why the Cabinet Office provided over a third its Transition Fund money to the North. The North has also been allocated the same amount of community first money as the rest of the country put together.
