To ask the Chancellor of the Exchequer, what assessment the Government has made of the effect the Levelling Up Fund will have on national economic recovery.
The Levelling Up Fund will invest in high value local projects in England to boost local economic recovery, including bypasses and other local road schemes, bus lanes, rail station upgrades, regenerating eyesores, upgrading town centres and community infrastructure, and local arts and culture. This is about empowering local areas to identify and bring forward genuine local priorities. To support levelling up opportunity across the country, we will prioritise bids to drive growth and regeneration in places in need, those facing particular local challenges, and areas that have received less Government investment in recent years.
