Labour to seek local support for £250bn 'regional renaissance'
Party to court regional mayors and councils over transport and infrastructure spending plans
Labour is to begin courting regional mayors and councils over its plans for £250bn of transport and infrastructure spending, promising to prioritise projects that boost productivity and help the rest of the country catch up with London.
Speaking to the Guardian, Peter Dowd, the shadow chief secretary to the Treasury, said the party would open a series of consultations with local leaders over the coming months over its proposals to help close the regional divide.
