Lisa Nandy comments on reports that the Government’s levelling up white paper has been delayed

Lisa Nandy MP, Labour’s Shadow Levelling Up, Housing and Communities Secretary, responding to reports that the Government’s levelling up white paper has been delayed to 2022, said:

“The Government’s commitment to level up our communities is in complete disarray.

“After two years of empty slogans and broken promises it is now crystal clear Ministers haven’t been able to come up with a single new idea to make good on the promises they made to level up our communities beyond more boards, bureaucracy and quangos.

“Far too many parts of our country are held back for lack of power and investment. We were promised a serious plan to meet that challenge. Nothing less will do.”
