John McDonnell comments on the Second Report of the UK2070 Commission
John McDonnell MP, Labour’s Shadow Chancellor, commenting on the Second Report of the UK2070 Commission, said:
“This report sets the challenging agenda that Labour in government will respond to. There is a need for a dramatic reorientation of government thinking which recognises the scale of change needed in investment and devolution of decision making.
“That’s part of the reason for my plan to relocate a large section of the Treasury to the north.”
