To ask Mr Chancellor of the Exchequer, what assessment he has made of the effect of the Northern Powerhouse policy on the economy of northern Lincolnshire.

As a key part of the Northern Powerhouse, in February, the government announced the Long-term Economic Plan for Yorkshire and Northern Lincolnshire, which aims to increase the size of the region’s economy by an extra £13 billion in real terms by 2030.

This will build on the progress seen since 2010, with employment in Yorkshire and the Humber up by 122,000.

This is welcome progress, but we will continue to build a Northern Powerhouse that strengthens all parts of the North of England.
