Power could be devolved to Yorkshire

1:20pm 3rd November 2009

Major decisions on housing, transport and skills could soon be decided much closer to home.

In April this year in Alistair Darlins Budget the Leeds City Region was named with the Manchester City Region as one of the only two areas in the country to be granted this pilot status.

Selby, York and Harrogate are included in the Leeds City Region.

Representatives from our region are meeting with Ministers today to make the case for having more control on local policies.
