Levelling up: what is it and will it work? (Institute for Government)

16/12/2021, 12:45 pm - 1:45 pm

Webinar organised by the Institute for Government

Boris Johnson has set ‘levelling up’ the UK as the mission for his government, but few in Whitehall or the country can explain exactly what it is, how it will be implemented and what success looks like.

Tackling regional inequalities lies at the heart of the Conservative Party’s re-election hopes, but relies on the implementation of a complex series of policies across national and local government – so does the UK have the will and the money to see it through?

Speakers:

  • Neil O’Brien, the minister for levelling up
  • Sebastian Payne, Whitehall Editor of the Financial Times and author of Broken Heartlands: A Journey Through Labour’s Lost England.

Chair: Bronwen Maddox, Institute for Government director
