Q2. Wouldn’t an Regional Parliament of Yorkshire simply be another layer of expensive politicians?


The Regional Parliament of Yorkshire would be responsible for making strategic decisions about Yorkshire’s future. It would bring greater decision-making back to Yorkshire, and it would do away with the need for so many unelected bodies and expensive but power-lacking metro mayors & PCCs.  

It would also lead to a significant reduction in the number of unelected individuals on such bodies with little or no democratic control.
