Business backs devolution overwhelmingly as poll shows strong support for power transfer from London to North East
Good to see hundreds of businesses associated as part of the Entrepreneurs Forum enthusiastically backing the plan to give the North East more powers from London, plus money, responsibility and the opportunity to shape our economy and future. this from chairman Nigel Mills:
“The North East business community is ready for devolution and raring to play a major part in ensuring it achieves its potential. There is a strong desire for areas such as housing, planning, transport, education and skills, and employment, to benefit from the deal, and our members are also keen to see business taxes reshaped as a result of devolution.
