Jon Trickett Challenges Government on Underinvestment in the North

Asking questions today in the House to the government Jon Trickett raised the recent ONS (Office for National Statistics) report on the economic gap between the North and South. The report showed that the North and South economic gap is widening.

Jon Trickett said:

“The ONS recently reported that the North and South economic gap is widening. Londoners produced about £42000 each, whilst in North East it is less than half at £18000 per person.

This is due to the continued underinvestment in the North.”

He went on to ask the government:

“In the place of more cuts will the Minister now include specific, substantial and urgent Northern investment in his local government settlement later this week?”

However, the government failed to address the inequality and economic imbalance that is seen in the North of England.
