At the Business Select Committee, we had an oral evidence session as part of our enquiry on ‘levelling up.’
The Government got elected on the promise to level up opportunities in our country. But eighteen months on we have seen absolutely nothing concrete on this- Darren is right that the evidence from Ministers was vague and flimsy.
This Government has had 11 years to level up the country. Now they have discovered the need to do this, the least we can expect is a definition for levelling up and an explanation for who is responsible for this.
