To level up opportunity across the UK, including in the North of England, at the recent Spending Review, the Chancellor made record increases to capital investment.

This included multi-year funding settlements for programmes to drive growth in the North of England, from broadband to intra-city transport settlements.

The North will also benefit from the £4bn Levelling Up Fund, to invest in local infrastructure and economic recovery, and a new UK-wide infrastructure bank headquartered in the North.
