Our comment on Jeremy Corbyn's devolution plans

Richard Carter, leader of Yorkshire First, comments on Jeremy Corbyn's Northern Future plan which was recently launched in Leeds.

Richard said:

"We are delighted that yet another politician is recognising the failures of the last 40 years.  Yorkshire First's Manifesto - Our Voice, Our Yorkshire - would be an excellent starting point for Mr Corbyn.  For Yorkshire to thrive it requires not just economic renewal, but social and political rejuvenation too.

"We have tried and tested models of devolution here in the UK.  We think Yorkshire needs to aspire to first rate devolution similar to Scotland to build a stronger UK.  This is too important to be left to local and national leaders to come up with cosy deals behind closed doors.  The people of Yorkshire must be involved in deciding a future which improves their lives."
