Support One Yorkshire Devolution

Support the Yorkshire Pledge and call for One Yorkshire Devolution. The Pledge reads as follows:

We are proud of Yorkshire, its heritage, its environment and its people and want to build an even better future.

Yorkshire is its cities, towns, countryside and people. Diverse but united. One Yorkshire.

The time has come for us to have more control over our affairs, to enable us to build a stronger Yorkshire within a fairer United Kingdom.

I call for a united Yorkshire to be given the decision making powers it needs to shape its own future.

Why is this important?

For too long Yorkshire has suffered from under-investment and neglect. It is time for Yorkshire to speak with one voice, to build a stronger Yorkshire in a fairer United Kingdom.
