The Government has set out its commitment to work towards a ‘comprehensive and ambitious’ set of City Deals across Northern Ireland.

Officials across Whitehall are engaged with Belfast City Region as they develop their proposals for a City Deal, which my rt. hon. Friend Mr Chancellor of the Exchequer committed to taking forward at last year’s Budget.

I look forward to seeing Belfast City Region’s proposals for a City Deal that can drive growth and productivity across the region.
