We're looking forward to joining @cllrjudithblake and @SHinchcliffe tomorrow in Bradford to talk about the Strategic Transport Plan and what it means for the Leeds City Region. Find out more about our plans - https://t.co/09IT8KsoTe #OneNorth
@helenpidd That’s the key point: both are interconnected and interlinked. If HS2 gets scrapped we lose NPR (HS3) too
In January, Andy made his views on HS2 and NPR clear.
🗣️“The truth is that the North doesn’t want one or the other – we need both. HS2 and Northern Powerhouse Rail are not mutually exclusive schemes, in fact, HS2 will help enable Northern Powerhouse Rail” https://t.co/VFxg0fr3ST
Important this inquiry recommends deepening and widening properly resourced, empowered and accountable devolution as the solution to imbalanced regional growth. Deadline May 17 BTW. @AndyBurnhamGM @WestMids_CA @CommonsBEIS https://t.co/bUWZHTO179
Labour leader Jeremy Corbyn has launched an attack on the Government's "Orwellian" Fair Funding Review, saying that "it will make poor areas even poorer." https://t.co/tWQHqcMn1o
On the blog today - how Manchester @greatermcr is showing Westminster how joined up climate policy should be done and it's impressive @paul_mcnamee_ @AndyBurnhamGM https://t.co/xmFWPi73WG
A very brief thread about why local govt cuts make me so angry, then I need to do some work. It’s not a party political point but one about fairness - and a tin-eared government STILL storing up huge social problems despite nine years of warnings. 1/
The North has been worst affected, with cuts of 22% per pupil since 2015. ✂️
@sarahlonglands, director of @IPPRNorth: “If we are to build a Northern economy which is truly inclusive then we must support everyone to participate fully in society.” https://t.co/748OHShXlT
My highlight today was the GM Homeless Action Network meeting! Led by voluntary & faith sectors in partnership with public sector and @MayorofGM. Devolution in action-working across sectors, across borders to a common agenda. Lots to do but great to see❤️
