Dan Jarvis Yorkshire Devolution

“Dan Jarvis used his victory after being elected as Sheffield city region’s mayor to call for a wider devolution deal for Yorkshire. “… the importance of devolution for the future of the UK meant that I couldn’t stand on the sidelines and that I had to step forward.

I say this because I believe that the issue of devolution goes to the heart of two of the most important strategic issues that our country faces – how we respond to the causes of Brexit and how we prepare for a post-Brexit Britain.

If we are to find the right answer to these questions we must be prepared to reform every aspect of our political system.””
