Hull and the Humber is set to be “ahead of the game” after confirmation by the Government that Lord Heseltine will personally oversee a pilot of the ideas set out in his plan for growth in the sub-region.

Alan Johnson said “This is excellent news

for Hull because it will put us at the very forefront of the agenda when it comes to new ways of delivering economic growth.

Lord Heseltine’s report ‘No Stone Unturned’ talked about there being too much Government interference and central control over what should be local issues and made a number of sensible recommendations to put that right. Hopefully we will be able to turn some of those recommendations into reality for the benefit of the sub region.”
