Government must move 'Treasury North' to Teesside, Darlington and Hartlepool

The Chancellor, Rishi Sunak, has previously committed to establishing part of the Treasury in the North of England. Commonly known as 'Treasury North'. The Government must commit to bringing this project to Teesside, Darlington and Hartlepool immediately.

Why is this important?

If the Government are serious about levelling up then this project must come to Teesside, Darlington and Hartlepool. Swapping one metropolitan city, like London, for another, like Leeds, is not going to lead to more investment and better policy making for towns, villages and rural areas. The centre of power needs to reflect and be based in communities that are most affected by lack of investment and locating it here will lead to more investment and better outcomes for local people.
