What recent steps his Department has taken to tackle regional inequality.
19 April 2021
Government is tackling regional inequality through our commitment to level up all corners of the United Kingdom. Our actions include establishing the Levelling up Fund; the UK Community Renewal Fund; the Community Ownership Fund; creating Freeports whilst empowering our regions by devolving money, resources and control away from Westminster.
Alongside this, the Government has also committed over £35 billion to help councils support their communities and local businesses during the pandemic.
