My fellow Rotherham MP John Healey has co-authored a major new report about Local Enterprise Partnerships (LEPs).

The report recommends a radical and accelerated devolution of powers to LEPs to deal with the widening economic divide. It reviews in detail the policy lessons from the Regional Development Agencies and LEPs and concludes that more jobs, growth and wealth generated locally are a vital part of a balanced economy.
