Lord Heseltine has been talking more to Wake up to Money about how to help the UK’s regions progress economically.,

“London, Whitehall, Westminster, takes the decisions, and for decades now the British economy has been centrally run for the convenience of the South East,” he says.

He adds: “The two most important things, quality and education, and the skills agenda, both are totally dominated by London.”

“Levelling up is not about saying every part of the country is going to be as prosperous as London… it is about making every part of the country feel it is charge of its own destiny.

“We have got to create enthusiasm and leadership in areas we are talking about., and can then advance policies central to their success
