Officials in my Department as well as the Department for Business, Innovation and Skills and Her Majesty's Treasury are in regular dialogue with local authorities and Local Enterprise Partnerships about devolution deals. In addition, a large number of Government departments and agencies are providing more specialist policy expertise both in negotiating and implementing devolution deals.
